One of my nieces is having her birthday tomorrow. I never know what to buy my nieces for gifts, so I thought it would be fun to make something for this 8-year-old. She loves sweets (who doesn’t), but she can’t have much chocolate these days due to chronic headaches. So I found just the right fabric in my stash to make something for her – a cupcake zipper pouch.
What young girl doesn’t like polka dots? Perfect print for the lining.
I made a small pink notebook to sneak in the inside pocket, and I found the coolest pens to go with this cupcake pouch – scented with cupcakes and strawberries.
Hope she likes her birthday treats and enjoys a fabulous birthday!
Stats: I used a 9-inch brown zipper so this pouch measures 9 inches wide by 6 inches tall, and has a little pocket inside measuring about 4 inches wide by about 3 inches tall.

I don’t think I’ve seen a pouch with a pocket…good idea! Very cute fabrics.
Love it! As a mother of three girls I feel sure that your gift will be received with lots of joy and excitement ;o) and for a future gift idea you might could teach her some basic sewing. You’ll have laid the ground work for the interest with this gift! Go you Auntie lol.
She is going to love it, what a great idea! Love the scented pens idea, perfect compliment to the bag and the fabric.
Every girl would love those presents! Beautiful pouch with so nice fabrics, your notebook is so sweet and those pens are the cherry on the cake!
She will love them!

Really sweet pressies – the cupcake pouch with the polka dot inner is so fun and cute and the extra goodies you got/made to pop inside are perfect. I bet she loved them!
What a cute pouch, I love the cupcake fabric. I have been making a bunch of mini pouches they are such a fun and easy project.
She did indeed love it! She carries it everywhere, and is always trying to put more things in it than it will hold. It made her feel very special!
