I didn’t have much in each print so I didn’t really want to cut them up into smaller pieces only to figure out how to piece them back together into another combination.
Hence, these adorable zipper pouches, which are perfect for a small moleskin and drawing tools, or other goodies I like to hide in my zipper pouches (headphones, power cord for my phone in case the battery gets low while I’m away from home, external hard drive with my homework projects on it).
For the grey pouch with the bicycle print, I used a 9-inch zipper, so that one measures about 9 inches wide by 6 inches tall. For the minty green pouch with the mushroom print, I used a 7-inch zipper, so that one measures about 7 inches wide by 5.5 inches tall.
I ended up using different prints for the backs, and now I’m in love with that look.
Since I’m a little short on sewing time these days, these zipper pouches were just the ticket to bring back my creative mojo. Now I’ve got all sorts of new ideas swirling around on things I want to make. I love it when that happens.
