Patio Party Retro Mid Century Chair Fabric print by Vitamini

"I love this fabric! But what should I make with it...?" I hear that question all the time at craft fairs when I'm selling my fabric prints! My absolute favorite project to make with fun prints is zipper bags! They're so useful and they're a really fun way to use fabric pieces that are leftover from other projects. Or you can make a bunch and have them on hand for gift giving! Just add a gift card or a cute pair of earrings and bam! An adorable and practical handmade gift!

Once you get the hang of sewing these little pouches, you can customize the size and shape however you want. Mix up the fabric combinations, add quilting, embroidery, or top stitching to make it extra special.

The lovely folks at Skinny laMinx posted this great tutorial (with pdf pattern!) for a zipper pouch with two fabric prints. Too good not to share!

Speaking of fabric prints - I'm working on some new ones for the shop! I also just released the Dachshund Love print in soft gray, in addition to the classic black and white and coral pink! My available stock of fabrics is constantly changing, so if you have your eye on something or if you're looking for a larger size, just shoot me an email (casey(at)vitaminimodern.com) and I'll let you know what I have ready to ship!

  1. Zipper bags is really cute. I also want to do it by myself but I'm afraid of not enough dexterity
