Thing 5

I had some scraps of this flannel from a baby blanket project last year, as well as a coordinating dotted flannel used for the binding:



There was just enough to make a wee little zipper pouch. This tutorial is so clear and easy, with step-by-step photos. I used it to make a stack of pouches at Christmas.

A little purple zipper in my stash perfectly matched the purple accents on the elephant scrap, and this was the sweet result:

I’m still working on inserting zippers neatly, especially at the ends. My stash is full of scraps and random zippers (I harvest worn out clothes for buttons and zips), so I anticipate plenty of pouch practice this year.

This elephant pouch will probably be part of a gift — maybe to hold an elephant bracelet or an elephant amigurumi…
