Patchwork Style Zippered Pouch

Over the typhoon week, I have finished a new patchwork style zippered pouch. I do love how this one turns out.  Within this zippered pouch there is so many my favorite fabric. I had stitch length problem when I first start sewing with the new sew machine. After carefully reading through the manual book I found the problem. The tension on the bobbin case is lose. The screw is so tiny, but thank to my brother who has a great tool box for fix machines. After screw the tension on the bobbin case stitches have been perfect and even.  I wasn't sure how the new machine would act on thicker/ heavier weight fabric, but it sews beautifully after I finished this zippered pouch.

I have try some new sewing material for this zippered pouch. This zippered pouch is fused onto the one side interfacing batting that is made from polyester material. After machine quilting it gives nice puffy look and the nice weigh on the pouch. The zipper is from a nice zakka style zipper that's made in Taiwan. The attached charm head is flexible and give nice and flexibility for pulling.

For the lining, I used the fabric that made in Taiwan. I am happy to find some fine and nice quality fabric. The fabric that made in Taiwan comes in 36" wide rather than 44".  I love the floral print that reminded me a lot library prints and nice Japanese fabric.  I have placed the patchwork zippered pouch is placed in the {shop}.
