Be Mine Heart Zipper Pouch



Taught by Kim Walus • Pattern by Bodobo Bags @ Ticklegrass Designs

The “Be Mine Heart Zipper Pouch” is a great project for even the newest bag-maker.

interfacings (see pattern for details).

During Class each student will :
• Open the mini charm pack and have fun laying out the squares
• Sew the squares and rows together to create the outside of the bag
• Learn about the importance of using interfacings and how to apply to fabric
• Machine quilt a simple pattern on the outside bag panel
• Learn how to install the zipper to the outside bag panel and the lining fabric
