Zippered pouches are addictive once you get the hang of zippers. I was so nervous the first time I tried to make a pouch but I got over that quickly and soon had a handful of fun pouches made in no time at all. I love that this is lined so many fun fabric options! My advice when doing zippers is to just go slowly and think about the next step. I accidentally sewed my zipper shut the first time. Luckily, just about anything can be ripped out and redone.
