I used the "My Favorite Zipper Pouch" tutorial by Jedi Craft Girl that you can find HERE. It was a simple to follow tutorial. You can use the same tutorial to make a bigger pouch using a longer zipper and a little more fabric.
It is a fully lined pouch and has zipper tabs which I like. The fabric is from the Papillon line by Moda. The fabric looks like it has a little texture to it in the photo but it doesn't...it is a quilter's cotton.
This would be a great project for one of my sewing students to try after their first beginner project and to get them started in sewing with zippers!
