Soon after settling on Mendocino, I thought it would be awesome to embroider a mermaid around the zipper. Turns out I am not the first person to think of embroidering a Mendocino mermaid (Aneela Hoey used it in this hoop), but I loved the idea enough I decided to go ahead anyways. At least I thought of it independently. :)
This is my first time using a zipper in a project. Of course, I never do anything half way, so it is an invisible zipper with lining. I am quite pleased with how it came out.
I lined the bag with Giant Octopi in brown. I liked the contrast form the light colored outside, and it should hopefully hide any stains from anything stored inside. :)
Now I just need to get together the extras and some packaging and it will be ready to ship! I sure hope my partner loves it as much as I do - this is definitely the hardest item I've made to let go of yet.
I am entering my pouch into the embroidery category in Celebrate Color.
