Sweetpeas hold your treasures like peas in a pod. Pods zip closed for secure storage and open wide for easy access. Great for stowing little things or tucking into small spaces. With Lazy Girl's One-Zip technique, cut your zipper to pieces, sew one side in straight and flat, then use Joan's easy Pull-On trick to put the zipper pull back on to make this precious pod.

INVITATION: Join Joan in the Lazy Girl group at Facebook: https://www.facebook.com/groups/LazyGirlDesigns/ SEE ZIPPER NOTES BELOW If you've made our Bendy Bag pattern, the triangle leftovers are ready to go and can be used to make two Sweetpeas - sweet! Bendy pattern: http://www.craftsy.com/pattern/sewing/accessory/bendy-bag/177647 - Seam at the zipper is finished and features my Faux Piping technique for a beautiful finish. - Exposed seams on lining are trimmed and finished with tight zigzag stitch. - Use 100% cotton quilting weight fabric. - The Sweetpea Pods pattern is in PDF format and is 5 pages of cover/instruction. - Full color photo instructions. - This is a rotary cut design, no pattern pieces provided. IMPORTANT ZIPPER NOTES: - The One-Zip technique works with polyester, All-purpose, basic apparel zippers (size #3 or #4.5) by YKK, Coats & Clark, or Talon brands. - All zipper tape and pulls must be by the same manufacturer to work together. Example: only use YKK pulls with YKK zips. Some Coats & Clark zips are actually by Talon and will say so on the zipper package. - The One-Zip technique does not work with metal or sport weight zippers. - Test zips and pulls to make sure they work together before installation. BASIC SKILLS NECESSARY Straight Stitch, and Zig Zag Stitch Required. An even-feed or walking foot may be helpful. This project is designed to be made using 100% quilting cottons. Rotary cut project, no pattern pieces provided. Note: Materials listed make two Sweetpea Pods. SIZING / FINISHED MEASUREMENTS Approximate size: 3" x 6"
