52 zippers week 5: adding a D-ring and wristlet strap

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.
