Thanks, Sharalee! It took all of about 45 minutes, and it's so fun and easy. Smiley

How do you make the ends of the zippers so neat... I put the fabric on but it must be something with the way I'm sewing it.... how the heck do you do that???

I think the best advice I can give you is to make sure the fabric isn't too bulky at the ends, trim as close as you can. Then when you turn the pouch inside out, firmly poke the corners out. Smiley does that help at all?

What do you mean by poke out? which way do you make sure the teeth of the zop are pushed? it drives me NUTS that I can't get nice tops like you did!

Ah, okay. I see what you mean. You want to make sure that the teeth portion (but make sure your teeth ends aren't overlapping or crossing) are pointed downward. And by "poke", I mean when you turn your corners, take a pen/pencil/knitting needle and poke your corners out so they're nice. But of course don't poke holes in your fabric. Wink I'll take a picture when I get home tonight.

What I love most about Keyka Lou patterns is they're simple yet adorable. I tend to try to make things too complicated or fancy, so I really admire her for creating such cute things without making them too fussy. I have a lot to learn!

Fabric is awesome but looks a little bit thin. Did you use any fleece?

Normally I do use fusible fleece, but I wanted to try it with a lighter weight interfacing this time. I like how it turned out, but I think I'll probably stick with the fleece. Smiley
