Awesome! I LOVE you fabric choices.  Where ever did you kind the Van Gogh fabric?  Shocked Thank you for showing the liner fabric.  I think that is just as important as the outer!

Would you be willing to make a tutorial on these?  I have been looking for a pattern/instructions on lined zipper pouches and I have not been successful.

Cute!!  I noticed the top ends are diagonal - is there a reason why you do that?  I'm wondering because when I make my zip pouches, the end of the zipper that's in teh seam allowance (if that makes any sense) tends to make the ends a little bunchy.  Yours don't look bunchy . . . anyhow, any info on that would be great!

I have no idea where the Van Gough fabric came from to be honest.  It was another craftster.  My best friend was in the scrap fabric swap, and it was sent to her.  She gave me all of her fabric recently, and so that is how i came across it.   

As for a tutorial, I don't need to make one because this is the one i use, it is GREAT!

my zippers are longer than my fabric.  I got a ton of zips from a thrift store for a great price, so i use those.  to make the ends diagonal, I just put the zip in and sew over the ends when Im sewing down the sides.  This causes them to be diagonal, and keeps them from being bunchy.   It took me a while to figure out how to do it so it looked nice and flat.

ETA:  Also, I don't use the zipper stops, I just sew across the zipper itself.
