caravan zipper pouch

Anna's newest Caravan zipper pouch has been on my to do list for some time now. I bought a pattern a while back and I was saving it for when I wanted to take a little break from all the things that needed to be done and simply sew with no specific purpose in mind :). And today seemed like a perfect day to do just that.

I kept the exterior of the pouch quite low key (a combination of text quilting cotton + yarn dyed linen) but decided the pouch needed a little pop of color so I used this bright yellow fabric for the lining. And a metal zipper, of course. I simply can't get enough of metal zippers these days.

It's a pretty big pouch, perfect for my growing collection of snaps, setting tools, and pliers. Ever since I started this serious obsession with pouches and bags the amount of tools, snaps, clasps, ... I now own has multiplied tremendously. Which is not such a bad thing, really, since this justifies making yet more pouches to hold all the stuff :).

This pattern is well written and easy to follow and I would very highly recommend you give it a try. The only changes I made was to add interfacing to lining as well as exterior panels and I added a little ribbon tab to the side. Also, I used 30wt thread for topstitching.

And now it's back to laundry and getting some dinner done :).

Talk to you soon. Svetlana
