More Zipper Pouches

Custom Zipper Pouch

I'm totally into making these pouches now.
I have this tendency to make the same thing
repeatedly when I come up with a pattern
that I truly love. And for now this zipper
pouch pattern has been my favorite and to
make tons more, I've snagged 30 zippers from zipit.
(Thanks to Anna for introducing the awesome shop!)

Custom Zipper Pouch

This one was custom-made for my friend Susan.
I really enjoy making things for her because
I think I have a pretty good idea of what she
would like and I know I have a quite bit of
fabric inventory that she will probably like :D
I think this pouch turned out eclectic and fun.
I like how on both sides of the pouch, a bird
is facing toward food. It's like she is
determining whether it's a good yummy piece
of food before going to grab it.

Custom Zipper Pouch

I didn't realize this until I finished making
the pouch but all the fabrics I used for this
pouch, including the lining, came from Japan!
These cute, little prints from Japan are
just perfect for this zipper pouch.

Zipper Pouch

This one might look just like other pouches
I've made but trust me, it's a little different :D

Zipper Pouch

I really like both pouches and can't
wait to sew up more of them!

I'll be back in a few days to share with
you some of amazing handmade gifts I
was lucky to receive in the past week ;)

Thank you for letting me share my
creations again. Have a great day ;)

  16. Loving these totally as usual. Somehow you've managed to remind me that I have a large stash of zips of the pouch size that I need a purpose for... not that mine would be anything like as neatly made, but it's a purpose all the same!!
