Fabric choices for the Bellevue Pouch.
Fabric all cut out and ready to be sewn together.
Here I am basting the exterior fabric to the foam. It will make the exterior fabric nice and firm and allow it to stand up and keep it’s nice shape.
I first had to cut down the zipper to the correct size. I always buy my zippers at sizes 18-22 so that they will work for pretty much any project that I do.
Then using my wonder clips, I attached the zipper and sewed it in place.
This is what the zipper looks like in place before I sew up all the sides. I also added in some top stitching on both by the zipper.
Here I am closing up the inside lining after I have sewn up the sides/bottom and flipped the bag right side out.
My finished bag.
