Zippered Pouch

Suzanne, if you're reading this, CLOSE THIS NOW until you get your birthday package....I'm serious! NOW! =)

Are you still reading? Close it! I know you girlie! =) 

Ok, now that she's gone...

I have sewn my first bag...well, small bag. I found this adorable owl pattern, and knew I had to make something for my bestie for her birthday. She is obsessed with owls. I have been friends with her FOREVER it seems like. Since about 8th grade, I think. 

This is us the night of my wedding rehearsal:

Anyways, her birthday was like a month ago, and I'm still working on her stuff that I'm sending her. Everytime I think I'm done, I want to add something else. But, I'm working on the last thing. Finally. 

I am still intimidated by my sewing machine, but I thought this would be an easy project to tackle. It didn't come out perfect by any means, but I hope she likes it!

I didn't have a different fabric for lining so I just used the same.

You can tell it's my first. Look at the inside. Oh well, right? I tried. She can use it for makeup in her purse or something.


  1. I am just learning how to use my sewing machine. I can't wait to make a zippered pouch ;) Thanks for sharing.

    Enjoy your weekend!

  2. Very cute! I love the owls! My sewing machine scares me too! I still haven't been very creative with mine and I've had it for years!

  3. It's super cute, good job! I'm a new sewer as well, but I haven't tried zippers yet... they intimidate me! Stopping by from the girl creative blog hop! I'm your newest follower!

  4. Very cute! Great project, I'm still too afraid to try anything with a zipper. I featured you today on my bag round up :)

  5. wow. I'm impressed that you tackled a zipper on your first try. I still haven't tried a zipper!


  6. It wasn't that bad, but the bag isn't perfect by any means. The tutorial was SUPER helpful. Thanks y'all for all the lovely comments!

  7. Wow, That tutorial is my "to do" things..... hehehehe, I haven't done it yet. I only recently got my sewing machine ( about 1 week ago) so I'm dying to get started.... all I need now is Fabric. LOL.
    You did a great job, keep it up, you know what they say, practice makes perfect

  8. You did great, I am impressed you attempted this on one of your first sewing machine attempts! I know your friend will love it!Thanks for linking up with Saturday Spotlight!
