Zippy Pouches

Can you believe I've never actually made a zippy pouch before?  Well, there was that one time I made a sew together bag, but a plain old zippy pouch?  Never.

Until now...

My youngest daughter needed a present for her best friend, who was moving.  I'd been wanting to try pouches for awhile so that provided the motivation I needed. 
The little girl's favorite color was purple, so the "P is for" bag was born. 

Petite Purple Zippered Pouch

 P is for pretty purple pouch packed with peppermints for Piper. :)

It turned out so cute that I had to make more!!

Spell it with Moda M Zippered Pouch
This one is for Miss Megan, who also goes by Bunny.

Gold Dottie Hearts Zippered Pouch
And D is for Devyn, with the most fabulous gold dottie hearts.

Fabric Details:
Purple fabric by Kaffe Fassett
Pink Bunnies are Posy by Aneela Hoey for Moda
Gold Dottie Hearts from JoAnn's
Gray is Essex Yarn Dyed Linen in Flax
Zippers from Zipit on Etsy.

I used Noodlehead's Open Wide Zipper Pouch tutorial for the bags and Moda's Spell It letters for the monogram. The Letters PDF can be found here.  I couldn't find an easier way to find them (with the whole alphabet in one link), so just change the letter in the web address to the one you want and it will pull right up. Links to punctuation and numbers can be found in this blog post by Pattern and Hue.

the girls will love those-- they can put all their treasures in them and they look like they are just the right size for little hands. So cute! M

Great idea to initial them. Very pretty pouches. I've never made a bag! Zippy pouches yes, but never a bag ( hangs head in shame)
