Sewing With Zippers...

My friend Kira made me the cutest little zipper pouch for my pens and pencils and I knew I had to give it a try!  I have been wanting to learn how to sew zippers and a small pouch was a good starting point.  The front of the bag is a linen fabric and the back is part of a napkin.  I collaged and stitched some fabric scraps to the front, added a little piece of velvet ribbon for a small tab to the side and stitched it all together with a red polka dot lining.  To finish it off, I added a small piece of chain and a little button to the zipper handle with jump rings.

Have a  blessed day!
