Hello..I’m a new fan of the Holland Pouch and City Street Quilts. I will be ordering the pattern soon. My question is about zipper selection. It appears that in some photos you have used a wide striped zip?? Can you offer some zipper details? (Where to purchase, etc.)
Yes, I do like to use a larger zipper (commonly called a Long Pull Zipper or Handbag zipper). Both the zipper tape and the zipper pull are larger than a standard zipper. I’ve purchased them from both the Etsy shop Zipit (https://www.etsy.com/shop/zipit) and Amazon (https://amzn.to/3kUv7gx). I hope that helps!

I have the pattern and plan on making it soon. Is there a step-by-step video tutorial? I’ve seen the time lapse on insta and as a newcomer, need a bit more guidance.
I love this pattern and just want to keep making them! Mine turned out great! Fir anyone looking, there is video tutorials on Instagram that were helpful.

I purchased your Holland Pouch because I saw Emily Dennis (Quilty Love) made the most adorable one using bottom half in vinyl. I have a general idea how to assemble this pouch (as I have made the duffle) but how big would I cut the vinyl? Do I follow the instructions the same way once I have the vinyl sewn to the fabric? Emily says she doesn’t have any instructions as she just followed along with everyone during a retreat where they made this. Any assistance would be appreciated. Thanks!
