    Oh, Jenny Doan, you and your zipper pouches...

    You can't make just one. Honestly. They're like Doritos. Does anybody else have this problem?

    My daughter is turning 5 and she asked me to make her a zipper pouch/wallet with ladybug and cupcake fabric for her birthday, and so I did, and wrapped it up and hid it away...but then there was all this stuff left over and hey, look! Two more pouches! They're each lined with the *other* fabric.

    Now, on to new fabrics!

      I agree. I'm currently on my third pouch making binge. First one, 17. Second one, 13. This one, 5 so far and plans for more.

              People are beginning to call me the bag lady - I'm addicted to making bags, totes, pouches of all sizes and shapes.....right now hooked on purse size tissue pouches.....dont even know who they're for or why I'm making them.....but I find that making bags is a total de-stressor (is that even a word) for me

                  You'v got to watch this tutorial! The zipper goes in before the two pieces of the bag are sewn together, so there's none of the awkward placing and pinning and pulling that more often happens when putting in a zipper...

                          I sell them, either at our local church craft fair or on Etsy (MayQueenQuilts)! Or I give 'em as gifts. Kids and teens like them a lot. They make good pencil cases and makeup bags!

                            where did you get that lady bug fabric. I have a customer that is wanting a lady bug quilt and I haven't seen anything that cute.

                              The first bunch I made as gifts at our family reunion last year. The second bunch were teachers' gifts for my granddaughters teachers. For this next bunch I haven't got anyone in mind but I may give them to my nieces.
