Jane Not So Plain

A DIY Destination for Sewing, Crafting and Fashion

Zippered Pouch

I was fortunate enough to be able to go through training on a few Baby Lock machines last week, and through out the process, I got to make an adorable zippered pouch.

We started with 2 pieces of printed cotton fabric and a piece of batting. After we made our quilt sandwich with a little quilt basting spray, we stitched a simple diamond pattern and embroidered our names with the Ellisimo Gold sewing and embroidery machine.

Now for the fun part…


Our pouches were ready to be put together and zipped up. To insert the zipper, we actually used the Evolution serger. Typically, zippers and I are not friends, but this method was WAY easy. We then serged the sides, and VOILA! We had ourselves a cute zippered pouch.

A Journey Begins…

I recently began a new job that combines two of my favorite things: social media and sewing. Everyday, I am eager to work on a project. And, even thought I don’t have hours on end to work on my long list of projects, I do make time to at least brainstorm ideas, cut fabric, or plan for projects daily. (It seems that I spend more time planning than actually making, but that’s a whole other post.)

Jane Not So Plain will be filled with tutorials, inspiration, and hopefully conversation. My vision for this blog is that it will become a haven for strong, caring and crafty women. Jane is a family name and, to me,  is synonymous with love, strength, and inspiration.

Keep Calm and Craft On.
