Welcome back to your Element3 Health Sewing Club. This week we will be playing with zippers and then expanding upon the design to create a new and improved version. In keeping with the name, this sweet zippered pouch can be crafted from a quarter yard of fabric and is a perfect scrap buster.
I am excited to see how the project will evolve and can hardly wait to design with you on Thursday and then see your finished projects on Friday! Don't forget to vote in the variation poll on Wednesday and as always if you have any questions please comment below so everyone can benefit.
Until then, be well and sew happy my friends!
