Can you install a zipper on a curve with your embroidery machine? You can with Embroidery Garden’s new technique!
You will use the drop-down menu in the upper right to purchase either the 6×10 hoop file, 8×12 hoop file or the set of both files. Note the actual file dimensions of both Curved Zipper Pouches are listed in the Design Info section below. It is your responsibility to know the stitch-able field of your machine’s hoops.
These curved pouches are perfect to hold a few sewing notions, pens, pencils, makeup, glasses and more. Scroll through the photo gallery above to see our various samples. Cotton fabrics have been used in the samples as well as a lightweight vinyl. Cuddle 3 was used as lining in one of the pouches.
The pouches are completed 95% in the hoop. A sewing machine is required to finish the pouches. It is quick and easy straight stitching.
The embroidery machine will quilt the fabric, install the zipper and the lining.
#3 zipper by the yard is required to stitch these.
We also used foam designed for machine embroidery for the pouches to retain their shape. Our preferred foam is Sew Any Shape Foam from DIME.
You can use batting, however the pouch will be crushable.
The included instructions will list all the supplies used. It is recommended to use what we’ve used to achieve the same results.
The written instructions take you to a point in the design then you are referred to a video for the remaining instructions to finish the pouch. We felt it was easier to explain the remaining process with a video.
Finished sizes of the pouches:
The 6×10 finishes to approximately 8.50″ long, 3″ wide and 3.75″ deep at the height of the curve.
The 8×12 finishes to approximately 10.50″ long, 3.75″ wide and 3.75″ deep at the height of the curve.
