Junk food pencil cases for my kids. 


I got this idea from toomuchrock's ramen noodle pouch.  I used the zippered pouch tutorial, except that the outside "fabric" was the chip bag with a piece of vinyl over it (I can't take the credit - it's toomuchrock's idea).


I crocheted little chips for zipper pulls (or "chipper pulls", as my kids call them), for clumsy little hands.

==============
EDIT, May 14:

I made a tutorial for the pouch, but because it's really image heavy, it's at Flickr:

It's also cross-posted at Instructables.

I quite like those.  Those zipper pulls are rather clever.

wowwww,  I love them... now, if only I could get someone to show me how to put in a zipper.  I don't know why I can't get over my fear of just trying it out...

 Grin  I LOVE this idea.  What a great way to recycle and reuse something that was just going to be thrown away.  See, this will start a trend.  You'll be making these for all of your kid's friends.

Okay, now that is just too cool!  I can totally see myself doing this, adding a strap and carrying it as a purse.  What a neat idea!

i'm so honored! I've started a zippered pouch revolution.

VIVA REVOLUTION!

And awesome pouches.

I have to admit people give me the weridest looks when i pull mine outta my bag, then are amazed when i unzip it. I'm sure you'll get the very same reactions.

Love the flavor choices!

Okay!  This has really made me think.  I wander if there is a way to make these and actually put chips and whatnot food items in them?  This would cut down on SO much watse over time.  My daughter lunch could have these and voila!  No need for plastic baggies.  Anyone Have any thoughts on how to make these washable?  My first thought is to line them with vinyl on the inside too.  Suggestions?  Ax174, do you think that this might work, since you have made them?
