Sew: zippered chalk pouch
Make a drop cloth canvas zippered pouch with CHALK sewn on front in fun colors.
A great accessory for kids to store their chalk:
I took a pack of colored chalk, wrapped it up and put it inside the pouch:
And now, along with the folding chalkboard easel I made last week, we have a great kids birthday gift:
The pouch is completely washable too!
Here's how to make the chalk pouch:
1. Cut fabrics:
1 - drop cloth exterior 9" x 14"
1 - cotton lining 9" x 14"
1 - med. weight fusible interfacing 9" x 14"
1 - 8" zipper
fabric letters (see how to make those here), use double sided fusible on back
2. Apply interfacing to drop cloth.
Arrange fabric letters and iron in place:
3. Zig zag around letters.
4. Sew in zipper.
Place zipper face down on one end of drop cloth then place lining face down on top and using a zipper foot stitch.
5. Open lining and top stitch:
6. Repeat for other end of drop cloth and other side of zipper.
7. Sew side seams, be sure to leave a 4" opening in one side of lining.
Miter four corners:
8. Clip miters and turn right side out through opening in lining.
Push lining down into pouch and press. Add grosgrain ribbon to zipper pull.
