As you may recall, I chickened out on sewing a zippered pocket in my Sweet Harmony handbag. After carrying it for a few weeks and wanting to show it off to my friends, I decided I really needed a decreet pouch in my new purse.
When I was admiring the wall of sewing patterns at my local quilters supply store, I noticed this fun pattern, the Zippy Strippy from Atkinson Designs.
I had plenty of scrapes leftover from my handbag. And the zipper was easy-peasy. This pattern comes with the option of three difference sizes. I modified the smallest pattern, trimming two inches off the bottom of the bag. It made the perfect size for decreetly carrying, e-hem, necessities. But isn't it cute? It's a great way to use scraps from other projects.
