Quilted Zipper Pouch

with Karen of kzstevens

Learn from kzstevens herself!

"Take your hand sewing skills to the next level with this fully lined quilted zippered pouch. Learn a shortcut piecing technique to create two different pieced layouts for the exterior, a stripe on one side and a checkerboard on the other. Hand quilt using your preferred stitch pattern. Learn how to hand sew in a zipper (my favorite!) and then use a sewing machine to put it all together with boxed corners."


Karen Stevens


For the last 25 years, Karen has been a freelance CAD instructor, training textile and fashion designers to create knits, prints and wovens for the garment industry. But these days you’re more likely to find her in her creatively cluttered studio than on her computer, adding one more patch to a favorite pair of jeans, or naturally dyeing a pile of vintage linens, hand deep in an indigo vat. Karen shares her love of visible mending, natural fibers, hand dyed fabrics, educating others on the joys of slow stitching and using mending as an art form.

Karen has a Fine Arts degree from Skidmore College, and an Associates Degree from FIT in Textile Surface Design. She has recently relocated back north from Wilmington NC to Vermont,, and is looking forward to a New England spring.
