Some More Zipper Pouches

Last week I mentioned that I felt I mastered the zipper. 

I like the concept of this Peek-a-boo bag but it needed some changes:

Do you see how you can see my
serging seems?  I didn't like this at all.  I also
did not like the directions of how to
put the zipper in.  It just doesn't look finished.

Before I made this pouch, I made the cash & carry
pouch and the directions are so simple, yet a nice finished look.

So with that said, here is MY revised Peek-a-Boo pouch.

I really like how it turned out.  I added side fabric to the vinyl so that you can't see
my serging seems.  I also used the directions from another pattern (cash & carry) to add the zipper at the top.  This looks so much better than my first attempt.

This cute peek-a-boo pouch is going to go home with our grand-dog this week.  We have been dog sitting our grand-dog Max for 10 months while our son is serving in the Army over sees and our DIL and grandsons have been in Europe.   Max needs to go home with his heartworm and flee medicine and what a perfect pouch to store it in.

Here is a sneak peek of the second pouch I made today.  Only showing the back of it as it is a birthday present for my sister.  Not sure if she reads my blog or not! 

Have a great week!



  1. Isn't it fun to modify patterns so they look how we want them!

    All those puches are so cute!

  2. cute little pouches. Fun gifts

  3. I love the truck and dog fabric!

  4. I think the first pouch was the colours.

  5. The dog pouch looks great! Totally finished look!

  6. I love these pouches! I must not add them to my bucket list... although very tempting. I am starting to drown with the amount of projects I want to make!


Thanks so much for taking the time to leave a comment. I just love hearing from you!
