I made these for my stepmom for Christmas using this tutorial http://flossieteacakes.blogspot.com/2009/05/lined-zippered-pouch-make-up-bag.html
I've never sewn with zippers before because they've always scared me, but it was really easy (or else I would have stopped with one pouch!) I really like the covered zipper ends. It makes it look fancy, and I think it actually makes sewing the zipper in a little easier. The fabric is Normal Rockwell Flirty Fifties from Quilting Treasures that I ordered online. My stepmom is all into martinis and I like vintage/retro stuff, so this fabric was perfect. I also ordered myself some Kokka fabric while I was at it, and I can't wait to use it. nom nom nom. Merry Christmas, indeed!





The thing on top is a mini-wallet I made. They're real simple to put together, and I'm sure you could figure it out on your own if you sat down for a second, but eventually I'll make a tutorial for my blog about it.

..eventually..

Thanks. Interfacing makes a big difference. If you check out the link I gave to the tutorial, she has a few other free patterns/tutorials. I haven't tried them, but the pouch pattern was very easy to follow, so I'd assume the others are similar.

Thanks! I have to stick with small and simple or else I'll never finish. I made my dad a quilt for his birthday that remained half finished from March (his birthday) until Christmas Eve, when I had stay up until 2am to finish sewing the binding on in time for Christmas.

Covering the ends of zips is the best. I love the finish, and wouldn't sew zips into pouches now without doing it since the finish is so much better.

Actually, that may have something to do with my inability to sew them in properly without covering the ends, but whatever  Cheesy

Very professional looking.  I love pouches & purses.  I don't usually cover the ends - would really add that professional touch, so thanks for the link.
