While browsing Terry Atkinson's website, I found a great free pattern called Sweet Zip. Two fat eights make three! http://www.atkinsondesigns.com/atkinson-designs-free-pattens.aspx
You may remember the Believe wallhanging I made this same friend last year. I used the same fabrics to make this! Check out the button--it was in my stash!
And the inside. Too cute for words. I (gasp) machine quilted it and even used fusible fleece! The zipper was almost too easy! Terry's patterns are wonderful and have clear, precise directions. If you've never used any of her patterns, be sure to check them out.
Thanks, Terry, for the great pattern. You are an unbelievable designer.
Blissful hugs to all, and to all a good night,
P.S. Ginny, it was great fun to be with you at the movies tonight!
