Shibori Zip Pouch

Remember the beautiful shibori hand dyed fabrics I got to make last year in an indigo dying workshop with Kim Eichler-Messmer? I hardly do either; it's been so long. Well, I finally found a project to use one of the panels I made. 
I chose one of my favorite shibori pieces, called arashi, which is made by wrapping the fabric around a large tube, looping string around it repeatedly, very tightly, and dunking the whole thing in indigo dye. It was hard to cut into this fabric, to be honest, but I did it to make the extra large size of the Essential Pouch, a pattern by Sotak Handmade.
I love the text fabric lining and the mustard zipper. The base is peppered cotton in charcoal - all of my favorite things in one little bag.

Try not to think about how hard it was to cut that fabric. Focus on how much you are going to enjoy using this FABULOUS bag!!
