It is true that you can never have too many bags! I also think the same is true for zip up purses. You can sew so many great variations on zippered purses with different pleats and colours. I think this tutorial from Skip to my Lou http://www.skiptomylou.org/2010/04/27/pleated-pouch-tutorial/ is a great way to start if you are a beginner to pleats and also zips (as they can be such fiddly things to get right!) Being a self confessed button-a-holic there was no way mine was going to get away without a bit of trusty button embellishment! So if you were all wondering what you are getting for Christmas the secrets out. They’re perfect for stashing lips balms, grips and hair bobbles in! Happy stitching.
