A Super Cute Zipper Pouch for Anything and Everything

I was walking through the store the other day and thinking that I would like to have a new pouch for my makeup in my purse so that it isn’t all over the bottom of my purse but the ones at the store are so expensive.  I don’t do expensive.  So I decided to go home and look at my stash and see if I had a few scraps of material that I could make a suitable pouch out of and look what I found.   This cute pattern is what I found and I was able to make a simple yet very functional pouch.  Here is what I did:...more
