Last Saturday we had a wonderfully productive day in the studio making Vinyl Pouches.
For most of the ladies it was their first time negotiating the petulant vinyl through their machines (after taming it on the cutting mat!).
Tissue paper was our secret weapon, placed under the vinyl when sewing. This helps it to glide easily over the needleplate (a Teflon foot on your machine will also work well).
Just look at those happy faces and lots of beautifully made pouches!
Well done ladies on conquering the plastic fantastic!
Enjoy your holiday pouches!

Yesterday was my Zippy Pouches workshop, a day to conquer the ‘Fear of the Zip’!
My courageous ladies could choose from a simple but perfectly formed ‘Easy Peasy Pouch’ or the ‘Gracie Pouch’ which included a template and a flange feature.
And just look at what they achieved!
Aren’t they beautiful!
Well done ladies! Your hard work totally paid off!
If you would like to have a go at making a zippy pouch, you can get the Easy Peasy Pouch pattern here and the Gracie Pouch pattern here.
