Aw yea, Hello Stitch studio day all up in this biz! My zipper workshop came with a free studio day and I was all over it. I wanted to practice sewing more zipper pouches.
I prepped all of my fabric before heading into the studio so I could maximize sewing time. I wasn’t sure how long it would all take but I had prepped for seven pouches. I ended up sewing four pouches in four hours. The first pouch took the longest and it got easier to follow all the steps the more I made.
I used fabric and zippers from Joann and Black Squirrel. Dreamy! I am loving mixing and matching fabric designs. And I’m learning more about what fabrics work best for this type of project.
What’s great about a studio pass is you get access to all the space and to sewing pros. It was so convenient to have areas set up for all aspects of sewing – the ironing area, the cutting area, and the sewing area. There’s also a lounge area, beverages, and a small market space if you need a break. And, you can also become a monthly member for added perks, too.
There were a few classes happening while I was hanging out; it was fun to see what people were working on. Here are my finished pouches:
I met two of the owners – they were super helpful when I got stumped. I learned a few tips to troubleshoot missteps and to try for next time. Until we meet again, Hello Stitch!
