Zip it. Zip.com. Zipperhead. (In which I attempt a zipper)
Inside my bag is always a proceed-at-your-own-risk proposition. There are markers and tampons and lollipops and receipts from CVS promising $5 the next purchase. Somewhere there's a wallet and a notebook and hopefully a little pink felt pouch of pens. Well, today, I had a wee bit of time and of course, all kinds of fabric, so I went for the small-and-easily-finished unlined zip pouch. I used the zip pouch from Denyse Schmidt Quilts for my basic idea then zoomed off with some IKEA fabric, some leftover country faire and a red zipper I had in a sundries bin. And, voila. The zipper is funky on one end, and really, I would have preferred a lined bag. But this little pouch will do just fine to corral the little guys, wooden animals and such who populate my bag and jump out when toddlers need entertaining.
Next I think I'll make one with a tether for inside the pool bag to hold the sunscreens & bug spray.
