I cut up a lot of old clothes to reuse the fabric. I can't stand to throw anything away, and I end up turning a lot of the zippers into handy-dandy zippered pouches like this one. Make it in grown-up fabrics to hold make-up, money, membership cards, etc. Make it in kid-friendly fabrics to hold candy, money, colored pencils and a little notebook, tiny toys, rocks, etc. Why does everything I make end up holding rocks?

Anyway. . .make it in a plain fabric and fancy it up with some applique or embroidery. I chose three monsters from the Monster Mash embroidery pattern to stitch on this one. Or make it in a stunning fabric that sings on its own.

Make it up once according to the pattern and you'll have the skills to make as many as you want - in any size and shape you need. And as if that wasn't enough - it's a great project for launching into the world of ZIPPERS!

And did I mention it's lined?

What you'll get:

* Complete instructions loaded with step by step photos to make a 7" x 4" lined zipper pouch
* Tips for customizing the size for future pouches (You WILL make more than one, won't you?)

Materials you'll need:

* scraps of fabric for the outside and the lining
* 7 inch zipper
* embroidery thread for embellishing (optional)
* sewing machine with a zipper foot, thread, basic sewing tools

Skills you'll need (pattern has links to video tutorials):

* sewing straight lines and turning corners
* how to sew in an exposed zipper
* how to ladder stitch or how to whip stitch
* using the iron

Time it will take:

* an hour or less at the fastest - more if you opt to add some embellishment
