Christmas Project: Zippered Pouch

Zippered Pouch Tutorial here

Make it Perfect  has a really easy tutorial for a zippered pouch.  I used some different sizes than she did but it all works out the same.   If you have never made a zippered pouch before I suggest you follow her directions.

What I did was to cut two outside pieces of fabric 7 x 8 1/2 and two lining pieces of a separate color 7 x 8 1/2. I also cut a fusible fleece piece 7 x 8 1/2 for the outside only.  I didn't want it too stiff but I did want some body to the pouch.

Then you will want a 7 inch zipper in a color that compliments your fabrics.

these are about 5 x 6
You can use these zippered pouches for

Made of selvages

 many things:  as a make-up bag; as a small item catch all in your purse or gym bag;  as gifts if you make different sizes or use coordinating fabrics; as a cute and unique gift bag; as your sewing items bag......I am sure you can think of a ton more uses for these guys.

Once you make one you can change up the sizes to suit whatever you want to put into them.  The pictures are of a few I have made with something that will give you some perspective as to the sizes.  I used this green polka dotted one (9x7 1/2) in my gym bag holding sweatbands, ties for my hair, a small brush and some wipes for my face.

And you will have several new presents in your Christmas Bag!
