Tiny Zippered Pouches (Lots of 'em)

Sooo I saw this tutorial for a very cute keyring pouch before Christmas.  Could I do it I asked myself? Could I handle those small pieces with my fat fingers? They sure would make a great Christmas present. Mmmmmm.  What to do, what to do.

Sooo I bought the hardware and zippers (thank you Monkey Makes Three for letting us know where you bought your gear from) and convinced myself to make just one.  Well I survived making one and couldn't get over how cute it was.  My poor family SUFFERED until I calmed down from feeling so clever. So why not make 20 more!

The tutorial is excellent with great step-by-step instructions (photos for each step).  The only problem I had was boxing the corners but that was what I call a "user problem" (i.e. me not getting "it").  But once I conquered one there was no stopping me.  All the recipients genuinely seemed thrilled with receiving one. Now that was a very nice feeling along with using fabrics from my stash.

Have a great week!
