How to Sew a Zippered Pouch for Sunglasses


We are sure everyone will agree that zippered pouches are the ultimate accessory for any age and any kind of bits and bobbles that we might have. Today, we would like to share with you our zippered pouch tutorial on youtube where SS makes a sunglass case for MS from the Krityum Team.
