The gift I give the most! A zippered pouch!

I sew these a lot! In fact, every girl or woman who knows me has most likely gotten one of these as a gift, a small thank you, a get-well soon or simply because! I love making these, I love giving these and I also love love love using these. Currently in my purse: one of these in handmade, one in leather giving to me by the Mr. and one faux leather to complete the trio. The best part about the handmade one is that I can toss it in the washing machine if need be.  Extra bonus! I’ve started making these back in 2012 when I first got my hands on a pattern but even without any major pattern piece or detailed instruction you can whip one up in 15 minutes!

Here’s what you’ll need:

  • a piece of your favorite fabric for the outside
  • the same sized in a coordinating fabric as a lining
  • a fusible interfacing (any thickness), I use  a mid-weight #
  • a zipper
  • coordinating thread
  • bonus: a tassel, a pom pom, a piece of ribbon to enhance the zipper pull
