As soon as I saw pin tucks, I knew that's what I wanted to try. I love pin tucks, but have never sewn any. I'm pretty proficient with zippers, but their tutorial showed a different method that I hadn't used before so I decided to give that a try too. The tutorial is at Simple Simon and Co. and after reading it and trying it out, I'm not sure why pin tucks scared me.
Here's my finished project.
|Pin tucked, Butterfly Zipper Pouch|
It's hard to see the zipper, but by adding a tab of fabric to the start and end of the zipper, it really gives your pouch a more polished look.
|I think I'll definitely use this method in the future.|
Now that I've taken the plunge and done pin tucks, I can't wait to do more. I love blouses with pin tucks and I have a pattern, but have always been too nervous to try it. Maybe now I will. :)
I also can't wait to see what the February Sew Crazy challenge will be!
