For the week two in this book is a little house zipper pouch. Simple forme in a shape of the house and with nice house aplique in the front. Love it, nice design and you could play with it as crazy. Neverending story how much posibilities you have.
So I don’t work by the book, so I did change a shape in to tall house with a big roof with one window. Nothing hard, just with a few mistakes. You know the experience are the magical thing that I need to have. No, that I did make my first house I have a few. First I did plan to have a tall hause because I did plan to use it for my kid, actualy for her sun glasses. Just a pouch with a strap so she could go in a kindergarden with it and if she needet a glasses she will know where they are. Simple. But my first mistake is, that I did recycle the wrong zipper. I should use a smaller teth zipper, but hey I didn’t know that.
But for the sewing itself; about the assembled part, I couldn’t belive how simple it is. You could finish in a few minutes. Really. So simple. Of course I like the fact that you use the lining inside and that all the seams are hiden. I like that.
At the end I did learn something new, get a new experience, and my kid have a new sunglases pouch. Not bad. Also I could use this as a new experience in a handbag sewing with my new project – learning making and wearing handbags. I did get a fabolous book and I did plan to make a few bags in a different styles, so I could learn some new stuff. But first I need to finish one bag that I plan to make it for my buggy. Then I have a plan to make one super small bag more as a arm wrist wallet. I have huge plans for this. So I do sew a little, mybe just not the right project, but I do sew, and I still have so much in my mind what I should do.
PS I still didn’t descovered what exactly Zakka Style mean. I like it I like the projects and I learn with it, even without the book. Yes, this is my main chalange. It is just fun; and It is special fun if you finis a project in one day. I usualy do more and I usualy totaly forgot in a lot of open project in the way.
