Keyka Lou Patterns shares a tutorial on their blog showing how to make a zippered pouch with neat, squared corners. A crisp, square corner is difficult enough to manage when turning fabric right-side out, but factor in the bulk of a zipper and you’ll probably end up with more of a rounded or dented shape. Their tutorial shows how to avoid this and have crisp, pointy corners at the ends of your zipper. Get the tutorial.
Be sure to also check out their DIY for the Holidays sale. For a limited time, all of their patterns are only $5 each.
