my first time sewing zipper

finally, i made something for myself! *big grin*

a zipper boxy case. nice or not? :-) it's also my first time sewing zipper... luckily, it was not as scary i thought it would be :-). i love the tab at the zip closure... and the happy hippo print from Ikea :-) i lined it with a polka-dot fabric; also a happy print!

so, what do i put inside? yes, 2 skeins of yarn and a crochet needle. since i've completed this project, i have this bunlde inside my bag, which i fish it out now and then when i have the time to crochet a flower or two :-). © Lee Pei Yi.

mommy to chumsy: Thanks for the lovely comment. Don;t know if people want to buy or not :-)

smallkucing: I used safety pins to pin the zipper and fabric before sewing to keep them in place :-)

ChloeRuoyi: I love Ikeas fabric; sturdy and very interesting prints... but pricey :-)

the little prince: I love it too :-)

Mummy Gwen: I like many of Ikea's fabric; the prints are usually very bold. Ya, pricey hor :-)

CH Voon: For boys also can la... but put different things inside la... can be a nice pencil case :-)

Alice Phua: Thanks for the lovely comment :-). I just hope I have more time in my hands :-)

lil' bulb: I like this shade of green... very refreshing :-)

My Botang: Thanks :-). I've avoided sewing zipper so far... hahaha. Guess form now on, I'll try more zippers :-)

A Mom's Diary: :-)

aniza: Thank you, aniza! I used lots of safety pins to hold the zipper and fabric together before i sew. Glad that you drop by :-)

Mommy Ling: When I bought my sewing machine, it sat in my storeroom unopen for many months (fear). I also started with no lessons whatsoever. But after awhile you'll get the hang of it. Even though I'm still a novice sewer, sewing is not all that hard... you can sew well too if you practice! :-)
