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.
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.
P is for pretty purple pouch packed with peppermints for Piper. :)
It turned out so cute that I had to make more!!
This one is for Miss Megan, who also goes by Bunny.
And D is for Devyn, with the most fabulous gold dottie hearts.
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.
