Zipper Pouch

When my girls were little they had a "church purse". It was brought to church and they could look at it during the Homily.  They also brought it to restaurants.  It contained, little pencils, paper, little stamps, Holy Cards, small sticker books.  Just enough to keep them entertained.
So, I thought I would make some for the grand-babies.

This young lady has the best tutorials!!
I used her's when I made my hexie pillow and now this one "How to Make a Zipper Pouch".

This first pouch took two hours! I am a slow learning!!  The second took 20 minutes!

Here they are....

For the rest of the weekend I will be cutting Farmer's Wife Blocks.

See I have the fabrics picked out for several blocks.

Of course it is snowing!!!  Oh well.

Off to cut.
Enjoy the rest of your weekend.
