For project #10 I wanted to do a super cute pencil pouch. I had picked up this fabric at the craft store a few months ago knowing that I would eventually make something awesome out of it. I have never sewed in a zipper before, so this tutorial definitely had some trial & error involved. I also accidentally sewed the keyring inside the pouch! I just ended up snipping it off, so it wasn’t a big deal. After reading and rereading (and rereading some more) the tutorial I figured out the whole zipper situation and it ended up pretty cute! I will be making more of these in the next couple of weeks for sure. With an actual functioning keyring to boot! Here is the tutorial I followed (FYI – I didn’t do the applique. I decided the apple fabric was cute enough on it’s own)!

 All my fabric chopped
up and ready to go.
 Sewing in the zipper…  Zipper success!
 Pouch parts ready to go. The final project – pretty cute!
