Ok, so the success story. The last zippy pouch I attempted didn't go very well, however, after a bit of encouragement from Susan and with help from the latest issue of Fat Quarterly, this attempt went much better!
Look at those neat corners! Look at the topstitching! (Couldn't do that last time, hadn't sewed the fabric on the right way round at the first step...)
This is a present for my lovely bridesmaid, she lives in Seoul now so her present needed to be small, light and easily transportable for when she heads back to South Korea following her latest flying visit. The fabric came in a scrap bag a long time ago, and was only a tiny scrap (18" by 11" approx), but I managed to get two little covered buttons from the final scraps to add in.
Hope she likes it!
