Bandanna Print Zipper Pouch



This pouch is about 5in by 6.5in. I made it using a salvaged zipper from a pair of slacks. The outside bandanna print fabric was from a thrift store lot of fabric. The inside blue lining is from some scrap material mom gave me. I also sewed a loop of the bandanna print into a side seam that I could attach a keyring to if I wanted.

This was my first attempt at sewing something with a zipper and it turned out pretty well, if I do say so. There are no raw edges showing, so it should hold up well.

I made the pouch to fit the zipper I had. It's a little big to be a change purse or key chain wallet, but I discovered this weekend that it's the perfect size for my digital camera. If I'd known that when I made it, I would have added some padding or lined it with a lens cloth. Oh, well, more ideas for next time.
