Cotton + Steel Day Two

Today's Cotton + Steel project is something that I just had to make.  As I cut the fabric for larger quilts, I couldn't help but admire the beautiful selvages on the fabric.

I found a scrap of batting, a zipper that I had laying around and a bit of purple yardage.

I top stitched the selvages on top of the piece of batting.

Check out the tutorial here that I used as a guideline.  I cut out the outer and inner bag pieces and inserted the zipper as instructed in the tutorial.

The result is this fabulous selvage open wide zip pouch.  I know you just have to have one!!!!

Come back tomorrow for the quilt made by team Midge and Wanda.
