Sewing pattern by Joan Hawley of Lazy Girl Designs.
Sweetpea Pods hold your treasures like peas in a pod, and sit open for easy access.
Use Lazy Girl’s One-Zip technique: cut your zipper to pieces, sew one side in straight and flat, bend to create a loop, then use Joan’s easy trick to put the zipper pull back on to make this precious pod.
For fun, swap zipper pulls and tape from the same manufacturer. One-Zip works with polyester, all-purpose zippers by Atkinson Designs and YKK. Does not work with invisible, metal, sport weight zippers. ALWAYS test your zipper for compatibility with this method before applying it to your masterpiece.
Two zips and two 10 inch squares make two pods.
Size: 3 inches x 6 inches
Try Tracy's quick tricks to make your pods the SweetpEASY way:
1. Use vinyl mesh. Cut vinyl mesh the same as you would your fabric per pattern instructions. Add an accent strip if desired. Then SKIP all the lining and interfacing steps.
2. Use Fusi-Bond to fuse fabric to both sides of Stiff Stuff. Then SKIP all the lining and interfacing steps.

This pattern is really well presented in a glossy colour leaflet with step-by-step instructions and colour photos for each step. Very easy to follow and it all comes together perfectly. Great pattern for beginners (and experienced sewers too!) Thanks again. Jennifer.
