This is a fun and easy project

The best part is that the Tyvek is free. All you have to buy is a zipper. I used one that I had around the house. Go to your local Post Office and get an Express envelope.

-Cut the envelope in half and use the side without the seam in the middle.

- Using an "L" square (for true, straight lines) measure the square to the desired size. Make sure to leave a 1/2 inch seam allowance beyond the end of the zipper.

-Trim down your rectangle

-Draw whatever your heart desires. Markers work best.

- Crumple your creation for a nice fabric like feel. Then smooth it out and prepare to sew.

-I like to sew the zipper to the top and bottom edges first and then sew the sides of the pouch shut. Simply line the zipper selvage with the edge of the tyvek and sew the zipper on. Repeat for the other side. If you don't want a raw edge, fold over the edge of the tyvek and sew it down on to the zipper, repeat for the other side of the pouch, then flip the pouch inside out and sew the sides shut. Be sure to leave the zipper open a little so you can turn the pouch right side out again.

-Voila! Tyvek pouch.

Hope you all enjoy this. This pouch is for my friend's Bday. It took me 20 minutes.

I got the zipper at a trade show. They give them out for free at certain booths.

Way cool!!
I also was wondering if you could print on it from your computer.
What type of markers/paint did you use?
Great job!

Very Creative!!!! Nice pouch pattern for any material. I had no idea that funky material was called Tyvek.
