This was so quick and fun! And look! I have my own triple zip pouch! I'm so excited!
Thanks to Debbie at A Quilters Table for the tutorial and the TZ Along on Flickr! I used Debbie's tutorial for most of it, and then went to the tute Marci posted to help with the final bit. Thank you, ladies!
I used a directional print for my main fabric and if I'd read through the instructions before cutting/fusing, I'd have cut it differently. I did allow for the directional but there's some backwards on the reverse. I won't look at it just like I don't look at the back of my hair when I'm getting spiffed up in the morning (or afternoon, or not at all, as the case may be).
I used pins on the first zip (1B) but that was painful and time consuming, so I switched and from then on I machine basted one bit or the other (the lining or the outer fabric) to the zip and THEN sewed whatever wasn't basted to the basted part (I see why writing a tutorial could be challenging!). My linings shifted ever so slightly, so before I did the final steps, first I rotaried them even.
I just love this. I'm so glad I used fabric I actually like, vs my typical MO. I'd love to make a larger one, and box the bottom.
