I created this Pouch because the bag busted but the zip lock was still good.  But mostly because I am zipper challenged, it's my innovative approach to having 'my cake and it eat to'.   I also fashioned it with a pop tab flower.  I've made several of these over the years to carry my crochet hooks, my make up, etc.  When I make myself a new tote/bag, I always make one of these to match it for carrying my money in ...  because I make everything with plastic yarn, it is so durable.





thanks for letting me share my design with you

thank you for the compliment ...

I know this is going to sound a little odd and don't laugh too hard .. I am okay with sewing the actual zipper on plarn (my Janome is awesome) - the problem is I always put the zipper on wrong ..

it either goes on upside down, wrong side out or on backwards. ... it never fails...  youtube has wonderful videos on how to do it and I'll even follow one of those and I'll be darn if it still goes in wrong...
