These two zip pouches were made for friends. The Blue Owl fabric pouch was a birthday present. She had been using a makeup bag that was very similar to this one in that it had owls as well, but in brown and cream. When I saw this fabric it made me think of her.
Her bag had a tab on the zipper, so I wanted to replicate that, too. After making it, I realized just how much I squeeze the body of my own zip pouches on each side when zipping them, so in the future I might just add a tab to each side of the pouch. The only difference is that I made this one taller than her bag, so that she could fit more inside. It's about 7x5 or so. I didn't measure the finished product.
The smaller pink glasses pouch has been waiting to be made for 10 months or so, mostly just due to laziness. She wanted a small pouch to house cards and money. It's about 5 1/2 inches x 3 1/2. I made this one first as a test before I cut into the blue owl fabric. I had never done a tab on a pouch and I wanted to make sure it would work.
This is an excellent way to use up extra fabric from my coffee sleeves, as I always have a long strip left over after cutting them out that would work perfectly for the size. I have been saving all those pieces, so maybe I'll make some more of these to sell.
