Fine & Dandy Zipper Pouch

I made a zippered pouch by a new bag designer, Liz Schaffner of Moments blog. Liz has been designing bags of her own after having been a bag tester for several designers. I will be testing one of Liz's designs this month once she has it ready to test. In the meanwhile, I made her Fine & Dandy Zipper Pouch last night. I had planned on cutting it out and sewing it today, but I just was on a roll and kept sewing, lol! I learned a great tip and plan on using Liz's method on future bags that I make from now on. I enjoyed making the large version of this bag. The pattern includes both a small and a large size, and that is really nice to have choices.

Here is the large size Fine & Dandy Zipper Pouch that I made:
Funny, now that I see the photos, I can see the fabric I chose looks like a 9-patch quilt block. I didn't even notice that before. I guess I was too close to it, lol.

My knitting stuff fits inside nicely. I have knitting needles, scissors, skein of yarn, eyeglasses in the felt case, and a few things in the pockets that you can't see. Still lots of room left.

I made a zipper pull with beads and a peace sign in lime green!

The empty inside. There are slip pockets and pleated pockets. a total of 16 pockets to hold whatever you want. Plus an optional swivel hook to hook your keys or whatever you want to have quick access to.
The side view.

  2. ohhh that turned out lovely ! You are soooooo quick!!
    Honored to have on you the team :-)

  3. Looks like a really cool bag - so nice and roomy! And I just love your zipper pull :*)

  4. As usual, I admire your fabric and colour selection, Daryl. (Not to mention that ultra retro peace symbol zipper pull!) I have come to believe that it's not so much the bag or whatever that catches my attention on the various projects that I see, it's the choice of fabric. Great job!

  5. i love the inner pockets, usually bags that size don't have any. of course your zipper pull makes a Daryl bag, a nice addition. great job and fun colors.

  6. This is a great bag, Daryl. I could use one to carry my knitting things.

  7. Beautiful nine patch. ;-) And a beautiful pouch. It looks to be quite useful, with so many pockets.
    Thank you for participating to my Fabric, Thread and Yarn link party. Have a great day!

  8. That's a lot of pockets! Will definitely have to check into this pattern! Yours came out so pretty.
