But I'm here today to show you the zipper pouch and tissue holder I made to go with my Teardrop Bag.
These two items were very simple to make. I used Simplicity 9949 Bag E to make both; however, I chose to line the zipper pouch (which the pattern does not do).
Nothing fancy here. Just pretty plan and simple. I like the size of this zipper pouch--the finished size is 5" x 8"--and I opted to add a loop and button closure to the tissue holder just for fun.
Again, I used Joel Dewberry's Aviary 2 Bloom in Granite and Ironwork in Granite for the exterior and canvas duck cloth for the lining. Love these fabrics!
Love them so much that I think I'll make another pouch or two out of it for the Make Because She's Worth It Campaign.
If you haven't heard about this already, it's an effort among the sewing/crafting community to help stop human trafficking and slavery of women and girls. Other bloggers and readers are combining forces to Make zipper pouches and bracelets to give to those women and girls who are rehabilitating from sexual slavery.
I hope you'll consider joining this worthy effort. If so, please visit The Train to Crazy or the She's Worth It websites for more information.
