Look at these sweet little zippered pods
But if you just want to get the pattern, it is available at Annie's (affiliate link) for $9.99.
They are about six inches long on the zipper diagonalBoth of them came out wonderfully professional looking. The one on the left is quilting cotton, the one on the right is fabric that I embellished with stitching over a year ago. They look a bit different because in one, I used Soft and Stable in place of the recommended fusible fleece. The other has the fusible fleece. I have to say I like the finish on the one on the left made with Soft and Stable a bit better. It made construction a bit harder, but I think it is worth it. The Soft and Stable is not fusible so I had to add a step to fuse the fabric to it.
The fleece is already fusible and gives a softer finished product. It also costs less.
I have no idea what I will do with these zipper pods, but I am sure they will be used. And I am sure I will make more of them. When you are making them, you automatically cut out two at a time. So I have pieces for two more ready to go except the zippers - and I used zippers that I bought on a trip to Mexico at bargain prices. I even had extra zipper pulls ready to use.
Now, let me say a few words about the class. Joan Hawley makes the construction process so easy. She gives some great tips on how to streamline production and get a successful finish. One of my favorite moments was when she said (and I am probably not using the exact words) "We aren't aiming for perfection. We are aiming for success - and that is a whole different thing." Isn't that brilliant?
