I finished my first zipper pouch after work yesterday... the first of many to tuck away for gifts.
I used Noodlehead's Open Wide Zippered Pouch tutorial (link) because I liked how the pouch will sit upright when open...
..... ready for you to reach in and grab whatever you need.
I think next time, I'll put a little pocket on one side of the lining... this would make a nice little bag to carry hand-sewing projects with you to appointments to keep you busy while you wait.

Link is now working, thanks to head's up by Janet O!
