Let’s talk zippers. Zipper installation is a must for any sewist, but it can be pretty intimidating at first, so this week I’m making it easy. I’m working on a simple zippered pouch that is designed to fit a small 1st aid kit. (Of course, you can customize your pouch to fit anything under the sun!) It’s a cool project that is super versatile, and I’ll share my best tips for perfecting those zipper skills. Click HERE to watch the vid!
