Conquering the Zip!

Earlier this year I signed up with Whipstitch's Sewing Buddy program and was paired up with a wonderful Buddy - Rachel. Through our emails we both discussed our lack of experience with zippers, and Rachel came up with the great idea of a challenge for us... a zipper project swap! Rachel's super-cute Watermellon clutch arrived yesterday. She made it for Megan and even included an embroidered 'M' (and I got some UK chocolate!) Megan loves it... I think even if Rachel hadn't made it for Megan, she would have laid claim to it.

I enjoyed making Rachel's clutch, but I'm still not 100% comfortable with zippers. A little more practice, and maybe a lesson from some of my local sewing-peeps, and I'm sure I can get the hang of these.

I was supposed to have Rachel's item in the mail earlier this week, but a Spring cold has had me knocked out since Sunday. It is going out tomorrow... Better late than never, right?
