The Zip-Zip® Collection
Each Zip-Zip pattern can be purchased separately, you can also choose the Zip-Zip Collection Pack on sale 😉
The Zip-Zip® technique
The 3 patterns use the same technique to sew the 2 separate zippered compartments.
It is a technique I’ve developed so that it is easy to achieve and with a clean finish.
To familiarize yourself with this technique, I advise, if you bought the collection pack, to start by sewing a Zip-Zip pouch before you start sewing a bag.
No worries, as usual the patterns instructions are very detailed, illustrated and punctuated with tips and links to tutorials. This time you even get a video tutorial for the most unusual technical part!
The Zip-Zip® pouches are compartmentalized, double zippered pouches.
The pattern includes 3 versions, each available in 2 sizes for a choice of 6 Zip-Zip pouches to sew.
Everyone will have its Zip-Zip pouch ! Pick tour version : Pouch #1 : unisex, Pouch #2 : male or pencil case, Pouch #3 : feminine.
The Large pouches can be used as toiletry bags.
The Medium pouches will be suited as pencil cases, makeup bags, etc…
