Zip-Up Tray Pouch


I've been wanting to make the Zip-Up Tray Pouch by Aneela Hoey for some time.  Until now, I've been carrying around a plastic box with all my hand sewing supplies.  Practical, sure.  But not much fun!


Now when I meet up with friends to sew in our favorite coffee shop, all my stuff will stay nicely organized!

I've made a lot of bags and didn't find construction difficult.  I took my time with it and I thought the instructions were clear.  The interacting was stiff and fusible on both sides - makes for a nice sturdy final bag!


(I'm still loving my cutting mat from ecopeco - see my review here.)

Zipper installation was easy - I used a metal zipper for extra pizzaz!   There were some sewing gymnastics involved when attaching the sides but it all worked!


I used the same fabric for the binding as the outside of the zip-up tray so any issues would not be too visible. 




Have a wonderful day! Patty

  2. That looks really useful! I could use something like that for my toothbrush and toothpaste when travelling, just pick it up and zip it up when leaving a hotel bathroom.

  9. I have this pattern and have been wanting to make it for a while as well. The finished product will be for my husband to carry medical items when we travel. Thanks for the motivation to get moving to get the tray done.
