Ok, I seriously think I love Anna from Noodleheads! She made a gathered pouch and did a tutorial around mother's day and I snagged her instructions.

This is hers... click on the pic to go to the tutorial!


I followed her instructions and made it this weekend. Her instructions were perfect! I must confess, I've never sewn a zipper before! Those of you who know me probably are gasping in disbelief, but yes, it's true. (as Blue Oyster Cult parody plays in the background... Don't Fear the Zipper....)

This is mine...




(Hey! I just noticed this picture is upside down!)


You can't see the gathers very well, probably because of the print, but they're there, trust me!

I think what I liked, and made this stand out from all the other pouch tutorials out there, was the fact that she put in divider and a double slot card holder.



I'm really happy with the way it turned out. She has so many great tutorials on her site for all the sewing enthusiasts. You've just gotta check her out if you've never been there! My summer is more than likely going to be a sewing extravaganza! LOL I want Anna to be my new BFF!!!
