Zip Pouch

These Zip Pouches never get old!  Why not make these for your friends & family this Christmas.  You can fill them with some products for summer.  I do not go anywhere without my We Are Feel Good Suncreen & Zinc.  I first tried this in 2016 when I went to the Margaret River Pro.  I think its the best sunscreen Ive ever tried.  Check out their products over here.

Carmex for the lips are a must when out in the sun!  I love the tingly feel of the camphor. And this year I tried my own Face Mist using Doterra oils from Oh Happy Oils.  Danni is an expert on how to use all the oils and she suggested I use a little spray bottle, water, witch hazel & some Doterra Peppermint Oil.  Please do ask Danni for any advice using the Doterra oils.

And for the Zip Pouch…you’ll need some fabric – approx 2 pieces 30cm x 35cm, plus some scraps.  A dress zip – I used a 25cm zip, some Rip Stop waterproof fabric for the lining, heavy or medium weight interfacing and if you have the Teflon foot for your sewing machine why not try sewing with plastic to make it completely waterproof!  If you don’t have a non stick Teflon foot, there are ways around it.  I used to use masking tape!  Id tape it around the feed dogs (the jagged teeth under the presser foot) on the needle plate.  This gave it a bit of grip and prevented the plastic from sliding around.  Nothing beats the Bernina sewing machines with the Teflon foot!  It is a dream to sew plastic.

If you would like to see a tutorial for these on the Miss Mary Blog please let me know!!IMG_5339
