Open Wide Zipper Pouches // Reader Appreciation Week Giveaway #2

Today is day 2 of Reader Appreciation Week here at Pile O' Fabric. This week I wanted to show you how much I appreciate you as a reader with 4 days of handmade giveaways by yours truly! I encourage you if you have not yet, to read the first post of Reader Appreciation Week here. I share about everything I am celebrating this week and how thankful I am for you. :)  

Day 2: Handmade Giveaway Prize

  Today's giveaway prizes are 3 Open Wide Zipper Pouches, one large, one medium, and one small.  And will go to the home of one lucky Pile O' Fabric reader.
Let me tell you these bad boys are really addictive to make, and really come in handy around the sewing room. They were made using Anna at Noodlehead's AMAZING Open Wide Zippered Pouch Tutorial. This tutorial is very well done. I have seen so many of these little pouches out an about I am assuming that it is a "Famous" tutorial.
I made the first couple of pouches back for a handmade swap I participated in, and actually received one in that same swap. I started using it to hold all the accessories for my sewing machine and It worked perfect, so I made more to organize my sewing room. I made both the large and medium size zipper pouches with the boxed corners, but left the small un-boxed, I like having the extra room in the smaller ones. I also tried some with interfacing and some not, and really like them with out.
These zipper pouches were made with Lark by Amy Butler (Home Dec Weight) and Bottom-weight Twill.
