Claire Conquers The Zipper

I made something new last night that I just have to share. I feel like I have now completely conquered the crafting world since I made something with a...zipper!! Of course, in reality, I am nowhere near the level of excellence that many crafters achieve (including both my mom AND mother-in-law), but in my mind, I am totally awesome. Zippers are hard to work with, but I persevered. The little pouch I made is not the most expertly constructed item, but I think I'll only get better the more I make. Female friends and relatives, prepare to receive these little things as gifts for the next five years. Sorry.
A tiny zippered pouch, measuring about 6 inches long and 4.5 inches high
What's that, a nice lining inside? Lovely.
Look at all the goodies I managed to fit in.

That should my last crafting post for a while, and soon I will be returning to regale you with tales of Laura's antics. As I'm sure you can imagine, Laura + summer=craziness.

That is a really cute pouch, and you did a great job on that zipper. I have put zippers in and they are not fun, making them look good is hard. I have been checking up on your new fabrics and dresses, they are so cute, I hope people can tell what a great job you do by the pictures!
