New Zipper Pouch for Trip to Denver

I've been in Denver this week for work and last weekend, I realized I needed a new zipper pouch for my makeup.  I tried a few tutorials and patterns for zipper pouches in the past, but while scrolling through Pinterest, I saw this one.  It looked really quick and easy so I went ahead and got started.

I picked a fat quarter from my stash for the body of the bag and paired it with a pink Kona.  I even had the pale pink zipper in my stash!

The lining is a fun pink print I've had forever.

This was such an easy make! I don't love that the seams are visible on the inside of the bag but I guess you could easily bind the raw edges to encase them and make the inside look as nice as the outside.

I love how the tutorial shows you how to add the zipper tabs before sewing the zipper in.  They add such a nice touch to the bag.

I really like this pouch and it came together so quickly, I think I might need to make a bunch more!

I will be linking up at Crazy Mom Quilts for Finish It Up Friday.

This looks fantastic! I have a few travel pouches that were gifted to me years ago, and it will be nice to have references for bags that work well to make when they wear out. :)
