I love seeing posts like this... it reminds me why i love craftster!! You have a problem... you just come on here and nice people who know exactly what you are talking about can answer it for you.  But i have to say this thread was in a completely different language to me because the most i can knit it a scarf Cheesy

yes i made the button flowers... at the top of the post i put a link to the origional post where i got the idea.  i hotglued them together to keep them in place until i sewed them on.  I gave one of the pouches to my mom, and the hotglue broke apart on her flower... but it was okay because i sewed all the buttons in place, so it still looks good.

Thanks!!

and no i didnt use a pattern i just winged it.  i just cut the fabric the same width as the zipper, and the length is just whatever i thought looked good..  you cant tell from the pictures but they are not all the same size in length.  im pretty sure i suck at tutorials but the next time i make one ill take pics and try and attempt to explain how to make it.  I learned how to install the zipper from a sewing book i was reading at the bookstore one day.  as soon as i read it i drove straight home and tried it and it worked!! i was excited lol because it makes the inside look so much better.

I've been making alot of zip pouches and wristlets lately.  Some of them have button flowers sewn onto them which were inspired by this post: https://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=304231.0  All are made with 7 inch zippers except Pouch #6 which is a 9 inch.

here they are:

Pouch #1




Pouch #2




Pouch #3 (the lining is the same as the strap)



Pouch #4



Pouch #5



Pouch #6



Thanks for looking!!

i read your blog about the first bag...  i know exactly what you mean about the instructions for this bag!!  i am teaching my friend how to sew, and she wanted me to teach her to read patterns.  She chose this pattern as her first... and needless to say she doesnt have a very good first impression of patterns.  Here I am trying to explain it to her and the instructions are very unclear and they even had mistakes in them.  We were bothing swearing at that pattern by the end of it...lol.  But it does make a very cute bag and i love the fabric you used.  and i agree that the handles need more support... she reinforced hers too.

here's how hers turned out:
