This week I wanted to make something small and fun. I used this tutorial to make this adorable zipper pouch for Ada’s binks. She made the bag to hold her earphones, but mine turned out rather bigger than hers and can actually hold my ipod with some finagling, but it is a little tight. You could use it for all sorts of little things like lip gloss or change. I’ve been thinking of lots of cute things I could do with this basic idea and hope to make some of them soon to share with you as well! This is a fun quick little project, it took me less than 30 minutes to make start to finish!
1 fat quarter
fusible interfacing or thin batting
7″ zipper (or bigger)
Step 1: I used a cd case to trace my circles, it has a diameter of about 5 1/2″. Trace four circles.
Step 2: Take one half circle that doesn’t have interfacing (this will be part of the lining) and place it right side up with the flat edge at the top. Place the zipper right side up on top and match up the top edge.
Step 3: Take your 2″ square and iron it in half with the right side facing out. Then open it up like so.
Step 4: Lay your zipper piece out like so and pull the zipper tab so it is in the middle of the circle.
Step 5: Turn the bag right side out and top stitch around the edge with a 1/4″-1/8″ seam.
Attach a keyring to the little loop, toss in some clean pacifiers and hook it on to your diaper bag! Or your kid’s backpack to hold gum and chapstick or your gym bag to hold your keys and cards, or…
