Back in January, I treated myself to a birthday treat: a class on making zippered pouches. For the class, we used the Becca Bags pattern, which I found to be well written with easy to follow illustrations and instructions. The Becca Bags utilize only half of a zipper. Yes--you actually cut up and pull apart the zipper and use only one side for your zipper! With the additional of an extra zipper pull, you can make two pouches with only one zipper!
But wait...there's more! The pattern has instructions for making two different sizes of pouches, so you get double the fun! I just had to make a companion bag for each of the larger bags.
The Simpsons' pouches made for a fun Valentine's Day gift for Doug. They were perfect for holding more Valentine's gifts: chocolates, post it notes and of course, Legos! I can't wait to whip up some more of these zipper pouches for family, friends and perhaps myself!?!
