Playful Pouch

If you're a regular visit to this blog, you will already be aware of my tendency to make little zip top bags or pouches like this one or the one pictured below.

By simply changing the fabrics on this basic design, you can make something a little more playful in style.
This project has it all for me. I get to indulge in my addiction to patchwork quilting, use up some fun scraps (from this quilt) and recycle a zipper that was from a pair of worn out jeans.

How funny, funny pouch!
(once more i learnt another word - playful - thanks)
I'm preparing myself to make a purse with a zipper - I'll use your tutorial; it is safe for this work- i've never sew a zipper in my life!(:

Sorry my ignorance, Katherine: I forget to ask you what kind of ruler is that on your last photo)

Very cute. What a difference the pouch is using two very different fabric themes.

Wonderful to see how many different kind of pouches you make from one pattern. Love the froggs!

That little pouch is so much fun. I love the frogs. Hmmm... thinking this would be a good use for some of the gecko fabric I picked up a while ago.

So cute! Zippered pouches are so much fun - the possibilities are endless! I keep forgetting to thank you again for the tutorial you did. I have used it several times and it works like a charm!!

How small does a piece of material have to be before you really can't make anything out of it? x
