A Pouch

 I discovered this pattern for a simple zipper pouch at Sew Much 2 Luv.  It is super cute and super easy.  This was my first attempt at a zip pouch, so I was pleased with how it turned out. 

I'm not sure what the fabric line is that I used.  It was a cute and retro part of my stash. I love the puppies on the lining.  They are adorable.  I cut another pouch that will be the opposite with the puppies on the outside and the flowers on the inside.  I didn't have another zipper on hand that was long enough at the time I made this one.  These would be so easy to whip up assembly line style.  Lucky for me my order from zipit arrived today with some fabulous zippers and ribbon. Jennie has terrific customer service and so many colors of zippers, not to mention some really cute ribbon!  If you ever need zippers, check out her shop.  You won't be sorry!

The inside shows the seams.  I zig-zagged them since I don't have a serger and they look okay.  A serger is high on my list of things to buy.  Any advice on purchasing one?  What brand do you have or recommend?

This is such a beautiful zippered pouch! You are right about the fabrics, really nice and bright.
Thank you for the link to the zipper store on Etsy, I can't belive how cheap the zippers are compared to the Norwegian prices.
Have a nice weekend!

Very cute! My serger is 20+ years old and still works great. It was just a standard Singer... I use it mostly for finishing seams so 3 or 4 threads works fine for me. Have a great weekend!

Hi Jamie,

Great zipper bag! I have a Viking 936 serger that I really like. But the best advice is to buy a serger where they have good classes for you to go to. That will make all the difference in loving your serger and getting the most use out of it.

Your bags are adorable! I just found out about zip-it from a friend of mine last week. I'll definately be getting more zippers from there as well ;) Have a great day!!!!
