I recently made this for my partner in the Tiny House swap. She wanted something functional, and I knew right away that I wanted to try a zippered pouch. First I wanted to try one with a zipper down the side (inspiration here). I made it, but because the swap requirements were for the house to be under 4" in any direction, it was so small to maneuver the zipper, and the fabric kept getting caught when I opened or closed it. I definitely couldnt send it if it didnt work 100%! So back to the drawing board I went. My husband let me bounce ideas off of him and we decided that I should put the zipper vertically down the middle of the back. Yay! It worked! And partner said she likes it, so I am happy. Smiley

Final (functional) house:

The original:

And together:

Thanks for looking! Smiley

FYI, this made me smile. Hurrah for trying new things, and for husbands to bounce ideas off of. And for progress! And for tiny red functional houses!

A clean house is a sign of a wasted life.

It's much more fun, this growing down. -RIP Uncle Shelby-
