The coolest thing ever is showing your daughters the page in a “real live” book with your tutorial in it. They are so proud. I wish I had filmed their reactions – makes a mamma feel great!
Lucky Spool’s new book “50 Little Gifts” is a compilation of 50 simple sewable projects, perfect for gifting or swapping. And, to be honest, I’ve got a list of things to sew right away for me!
My contribution is the Cat-Eye Zipper Pouch tutorial. I love having it close by, now I won’t have to go back to my post for the instructions!
I was thrilled when Susanne Woods asked to include my tutorial. And doubly-thrilled to be in the company of contributors I’ve silently
stalked followed around for forever – Anna from Noodlehead, Deborah from Whipstitch, Abby Glassenberg and Denyse Schmidt to name a few.
As I was flipping through it again this morning. I commented to my husband that I want to make so many of the projects in it – some books have a few great tutorials – this one is chock full of greatness. #notjustsayin

Congratulations on being a part of this book! Your cat-eye zipper pouch certainly deserves a page or two of its own! I enjoy making personalized mug rug sets/coasters for friends. I use my embroidery machine to add their name or initials.

I love making so many things but I often make zippered pouches of some sort!

This book looks the CUTEST!! Congrats on being included, that is super neat! My favorite things are probably pouches, but I haven’t branched out very much

For babies – dish towel bibs or quilts
For grown-ups? It really depends on the person. But probably bags and pouches.
Congratulations!! I can imagine your excitement!

Thanks for the opportunity to win! I have had your zip pouch tutorial saved for I don’t know how long and I just recently bought some special fabric to make one. How’s that for coincidence!
