Improv owl zip. This is the first of what may or may not be more posts in a “Look! I can sew!” series. For those of you (including myself) that were beginning to wonder if I really know how to sew, or if it was all just a ruse to support my fabric habit.... YES! I do know how to sew.
This little zip was one of several I made for the PAHM in Bellingham; and the only one not to find a new home. I may or may not list it in the shop this next week. Ah, so decisive of me, eh? These zips are fun to make and a great way to use up scraps but can be rather time-consuming if you’re like me and fuss over the fabric selections. Too bad I can’t just sew blind-folded!
I fussy-cut the owls and then added to them in an impov log cabin style, until they measured a bit over 9”, trimmed to square, and completed the zip as normal.
Maybe next time, I’ll take some in process pics. Maybe. But I wouldn’t hold my breath if I were you.
