I had this rather large piece of vintage-y quilted fabric in my stash. It came in a bargain bag of scraps from a yard sale a few years ago.
Anyways, I've been trying to make use of what I have instead of buying more. Partly to save money but mostly because it means less to move around when my sewing room becomes a nursery.
This fabric was already sewn into something and taken apart so this is not it's first party. Ha! It's a little worn in spots but perfect for these zipper pouches.
I often need some pouches for storing items when traveling. I made one large enough to carry my hair straightener and then the second one ended up a little smaller because of the size of the fabric.
I had some red gingham ruffle in my scrap
bucket pile. I think it was given to me in a box of fabric??
Anyways, I liked it with the sweet strawberry fabric so I sewed some ruffles on the pouches.
Even the zippers were repurposed from some old lingerie bags!!!
So yay for a quick evening project that cost nothing to make but is cute and super useful!
