I received a message from an old friend about a week ago. She’s a friend I’ve never met in person but have known her for many years through Jack Russell Terriers on the internet. She asked me if I could make here some Jack Russell items to use as prizes in a dog show. Of course, I said I was in.
The dog show isn’t until August, but I wanted to get these done so I don’t have to scramble at the last minute.
She’s having me make six zipper pouches using some Jack Russell fabric I’ve had for years, combined with some fun novelty fabrics.
I got started on them tonight after our walk and got all the panels sewn, pressed and top stitched, and applied the fusible fleece to each one. I Also got zippers selected for each pouch.
I used to make a lot of pouches. I haven’t made any in a while because they became somewhat tedious to make and I had a good number on hand. So I moved on. But it’s fun to make some every now and again.
The next thin I’ll need to do is make the zipper tabs and then sew in the zippers. I may have these done tomorrow.
My friend also wanted 6 Jack Russell key fobs.
There will be a couple left over. Might have to keep one for me.
And, interestingly, I have a lot of zippers! I wonder why I bought so many beige ones? Must have been during my linen phase.
Here’s a detail view of some of the pouch panels.
That Jack Russell fabric is so cute! I’ve had it for years. Can’t even remember where I got it. Have about 3/4 of a yard left. I’m guessing I’ll be hoarding it from here on out.
I did get out and get my hair cut today and it feels great!
I’m guessing it will different tomotrow after I wash it.
Here’s a photo of Rico from this afternoon… killing the game of fetch.
Tomorrow I have two sheep herding lessons! It should be a good day.
