Dreaming of Zippered Pouches...

ALL night I dreamed about making zippered pouches!  So what do you think I did first thing this morning?  I'll give you one hint- I am still in my jammies and it's 8:15pm ;D  Yes, I sewed ALL day!  ....well, that is not entirely true.  I did get the house clean with the help of my boys first.  THEN I sewed for the rest of the day.  Now, you may be saying, "Doesn't she have rules about getting dressed before sewing?"  and you'd be correct!     ..but, I had to wear make up and do my hair yesterday so I figured that I could slouch around today :)  (Yes, I know that I am pretty LAME!)
Now on to the zippered pouches.....
I used Crazy Mom Quilts tutorial HERE
The sizing is different for mine, but it is still pretty dang cute!!!
The front.

The back
After the pouch was finished I lazed about a bit before I got to work on  finishing Austin's quilt.   I have a few teaser pictures.  I'll take some out side tomorrow!


Quilting in progress...

  1. Love the bag! So cute! And the blanket is beautiful! Love the brown minky. Good choice!

    And, just in case you might be interested, I happened upon another cute little zippered pouch tutorial. It doesn't use clear vinyl but it would be cute for other things...

  2. Oooh and I also got to thinking that if this vinyl pouch were to be used for things like make-up, then maybe it would be fun to have the fabric be that vinyl-ish fabric, so that the make-up smears and messes could be wiped off. Hmmm... you've got my mind on zippered pouches!!!

    1. Yes! Hey have all of that beautiful laminated cloth now :) If you are going to sew suppers, there is an etsy store where I bought mine. They ended up being less than 40 cents a piece shipped :) Shes got a great selection. I think its called zipit. I'm off to get ready for church. Two wards to attend. I gt to speak in one of them ;)
