Becca Pouch

Even though I just finished the Sweet Pea Pods last week, I was so excited to work on the next project in the class: Zip-It Bag With a Twist by Joan Hawley. The second project is the Becca bag, an adorable little pouch with faux piping, boxed corners, and flange. My favorite part of the bag is actually the gold zipper pull which is a different color from the purple zipper, thanks to the one-zip technique!

This bag was so quick and easy to make, that I finished it in one sewing session. That's pretty rare for me, but I just wanted to keep going! One limitation with this type of construction is the length of the zipper tape. Since I only had 16" zippers, and due to the way it's folded in half, at the end I could only make a bag that was about 7" x 5" x 3/4".

But even though it's small, it holds all my essentials, so that's good enough! I've also understood the technique enough that I think I can make another one from memory. Now that's good instruction.

  1. This is a lovely bag. I am sure that you will soon get longer zippers. Becca bags are addictive. Ask me how I know :-p

  2. If I overcome my zipper avoidance, it will be your fault! It would be nice to finally use my zipper stash. I love the fabrics you chose for this little pouch and you're right the gold zipper touch gives it the Wow factor.

  3. Another really fun bag. Gotta look this zip technique up!

  4. Such a pretty little bag! Will you be making more as holiday gifts?

  5. This is such a cute bag! I love the colors and the little pop the different colored zipper pull gives.
