Zig-Zags

Crazy things happen when you go on vacation.
Over the holidays we went to Zermatt Switzerland, when we came home I started playing with fabrics and before I knew it I had made these crazy shapes which looked like the mountains in Switzerland.  So I decided they would be perfect for kids! Wouldn't these be great to fill with chocolates for Easter or small toys ??

From the mountains of Zermatt...here are the Zig -Zags!
These are not your typical pouches ...these are fun & funky!!
Not to mention they are fast to sew!!
All you need is some scraps...about 36" of a continuous zipper ( makes 2 pouches) and about an hour of your time! Zig-Zags are born !!
You are going to have so much fun making them...the testers said they were addicting !!

The Zig-Zags come with instructions for 3 versions...I am calling them the Car Park, Crayon Case & Eyeglass case but they can be used for anything you like ....

The Car Park...perfect for boys to take along their cars...
Crayon Case...who doesn't like to colour ??


 Eyeglass case or perfect for the Zentangle pens ??

The ideas for what the Zig zags can be used for is endless...
..look at the creative ideas the testers came up with ....

Christine of Bags of Bags got creative personalizing the insides ...and outsides!
 She even used fabric that had her kids & sister on...how cool!!
Isn't that a cool sewing kit ??
Cheryl of Simply Cherabea made the lovely glasses case
Margareth of Maggie made Bags made all 3 ...which really surprised me since she said she doesn't do elastic!!LOL ...don't you love that car!!?
Bernice made these adorable ones..perfect for Easter!
Sue from Dreamscape Studio enlarged the crayon case to fit her crochet hooks...love the machine embroidered design!
Cathy made the 2 cases for her grandkids and the eyegass case for herself 
Last but not least for today...
Barbara made this pretty eyeglass case. I love how she finished the zipper off with a tab & rivet!
I have more inspiration for you tomorrow.... 
In the meantime ...here is a sneak peak of the second pattern called Tessa...this is a bigger version and she is perfect for as party bag or for a teenage.
The Zig Zag  & Tessa patterns are available on Craftsy ... 
You can can get them separately or in a money saving bundle !
They are on SALE for 48 hrs !!
Grab your copy and get in on the fun!!

Happy Sewing !!!
