Scrap Busting Zombies

When I make a bag, it encompasses hours or even days of cutting, interfacing and sewing. So, it's nice to do a quick, instant gratification project from time to time. 

After making two zombie bags recently, I had lots of small zombie scraps. Basically just enough for a zip pouch and a sunglasses case for a friend's Facebook giveaway. 

I have approximately 76 thousand pairs of sunglasses, and zero pairs that do not have scratches all over the lenses. I just toss them in my bag, never mind that I could sew myself up a case in no more than ten minutes. That's just how I roll. This is also the reason that I am not allowed to have nice things. I think a splurge on sunglasses is when I have to pay over ten bucks for them, simply because I know what their fate will be. 

Zip pouches are another quickie project, and oh so functional. I used to be intimidated by zippers, but after a few dozen of these I had gathered the confidence to start sewing patterns that called for zippers. Seriously, if anyone is intimidated by zippers these are a great way to break the ice. There are bajillion tutorials out there to get you started and quite honestly you don't really need a zipper foot for these. 

Happy Sewing!
