I saw some really cool pyramid zip-up pouches around here and wanted to make some for my sister's birthday as party-favors. But I don't have enough zippers lying around and I haven't found anywhere that sells them for really cheap. So I though of velcro instead which is nice and cheep =).

My own (experimental) design. I will definitely try this again tweaking some things up, of course.

Comments and critique are more than welcome!
decidedly average

Nifty! I've never seen a design like that before - it's cool! Was it hard to make?

Well it wasn't exactly the "quick and snappy" project I had hoped it would be, but it wasn't hard either.
I cut out twelve equilateral triangles (60 degrees for each angle), six out of each fabric.
Sew on strips of velcro onto four of them, then paired and sew the triangles together (sew on the wrong side, then reverse).
I had to sew the whole thing together by hand (hence the messiness) because my machine wouldn't take it.
I suggest making the triangles a bit larger (mine were 2inches a side) and chop of excess fabric before turning them out (maybe that way, they can be put together with the machine)
