Today’s project came from Noodlehead: The Open Wide Zippered Pouch.

I…need to practice this bag some more.  This is a hot mess.  I was hoping the fabric would be stiff enough without interfacing, but I was wrong, and putting interfacing on a bag that’s already constructed is…not a great idea.  I also have a hard time getting linings to fit snugly; my linings are always too big.

I did enjoy learning about doing zipper tab and constructing a bag with a wide, solid bottom.  And I love this fabric; the remnant bin at any fabric store is my favorite place to shop.

I won’t be gifting this particular bag, but it’s serviceable and I’ll happily use it for myself.
