What is it about zipper pouches? I can never make enough! They are such a fun gift to give and receive. And they are so quick and easy to make. This year I made zipper pouches with pretty ribbon and clear vinyl for back-to-school teacher gifts. If you are worried about sewing on the vinyl... don't be! Seriously I worked it all out and by the time I was ready to write this tutorial I knew all the tricks. Now I'm going to share them with you. :) The ribbon that I used for all my pouches came from Renaissance Ribbons. It is so soft and fabulous and it's available online. The easy-zipping YKK zippers came from Zipper Shop. This free download includes the pattern templates only.

My name is Caroline and I want to inspire you to sew by showing you something beautiful every day. My website is I have four children and a room full of fabric. Sewing has been my passion for as long as I can remember. Since I started having kids most of my sewing is for them and our home. For years now my browser's bookmark files have been filling up with project ideas that I need to try. It's helpful because people often ask me if I know how they can make such-and-such, and I tell them I'll just go home and email you the link to a tutorial. Well, now I get to share those tutorials with anyone who will look (or sign up for my newsletter). If you follow along with us on She Sews! the SewCanShe blog, we'll explore new tricks and techniques and show off our work every Saturday in our linky party.
