zippity zip

zippy pouches

As promised, I did finish something as of late!  


Zippy pouches

These little zippy pouches will be used as "prizes" for my cousin's upcoming bridal shower.  I followed the same method I used here to whip up these cuties.  I must say, I do not think I will ever finish a zipper any other way than using the tabs on the ends, it just makes such a clean professional looking finish.

I had a good time playing with my fabric stash to come up with these color combos, and for the most part worked out of my scrap bins.  Theres really an assortment here, and I have to say it will be hard to part with them.

In case your in the market for zippers, I found these bright fun zips from zipit on Etsy.  I just checked, apparently their shop is closed until Friday for vacation, but they had close to every color under the rainbow in all sorts of different lengths and great prices.  I think I bought 50 at one time, and picked 5 each of 10 different colors.  Such a great deal (I think it worked out to somewhere around 50 cents per zipper) compared to what they run per zipper if purchasing somewhere like Joanns.

These measure approximately 8 inches wide by 5 1/2 inches tall and are great for holding all sorts of odds and  ends.

I made 10 total, but thought the mosaic for 9 looked prettier.  Now to find a pretty way to package them, and I'll be set!
