Awhile back, I participated in a sewing swap that was put on by Heather of The Sewing Loft. We could make any kind of purse, pouch, or bag as long as it had a zipper. I used the Open Wide Zipper Pouch tutorial from Anna of Noodlehead. It was so easy to make and there are three different sizes to choose from. I have made a couple other zipper pouches using this same tutorial. My partner's favorite color is red, so I decided to use that color in her bag.
I made the small size, which is about 9 x 6 inches tall when finished. It is very roomy too.
My partner made me this adorable coin purse! I love the colors and it is the perfect size. Now I won't lose all my coins in my purse!
Here's the inside - the lining is very pretty.
I had so much fun participating in this swap! It is just as fun making something for someone as it is receiving something especially if it is a surprise package coming in the mail!
