If you’re new to my 52 zippers project, you can read the backstory, see all the zipper pouches, and download basic zipper pouch instructions here.
For this week’s zipper pouch, I wanted to make a small pouch that my daughter could use for her money. She (and I) love bunnies so I included a fussy-cut strip of Mochi by Rashida Coleman-Hale/Cotton + Steel. I decided to just use a strip of it instead of making the whole pouch out of it so as to put the focus on just a few bunnies. That way there is a lovely row of perfect bunnies and moons, instead of a bunch of half-moons at the edges. The lining is the same Mochi print. The blue is Essex yarn-dyed linen in Peacock.
Like last week, I added a D-ring, and this week I also added a small strap, called a wristlet strap. Both of these are very easy and cute additions, and I’ve written up another handout to show you how! Download it here, free for a limited time.
