"More?" you ask. To tell you the truth, zippered pouches have been my last minute go-to-gift bag for some time... but seeing that they are often made spur of the moment with the clock ticking, not many of them get photographed. I made this lot one morning last week in the midst of the yarn pouch sewing and remembered my camera! These are smaller and just right for holding a gift card to a local cafe or some child made mini art... a little appreciation for four teachers we love dearly and are so grateful for. Each fabric choice was very intentionally chosen for the receiver... from a math teacher to a hedgehog lover we had them covered. All linings and zippers were from salvaged origins.
The reality is, I love the satisfaction of small projects... throw in the fun of fabric shopping on my studio shelves and the instant utility of a zippered bag, and you have my favorite way to unwind at the end of the night. As this is some of the only sewing I can show off these days... don't be surprised if you see more of them.
