Noodlehead Open Wide Zipper Pouch

Wow! Where has the time gone? I can't believe I haven't posted anything in two and a half months! We have had a wonderful summer, but it is going by much too quickly. I can't believe it's August already! My six year old starts first grade this fall. Our town still has half-day Kindergarten, so this year is another big step for us as she moves to a full day of school for first grade. She's excited, I'm nervous, but it will all be good, I'm sure :) My three and a half year old will be returning to her preschool... still two days per week, but this year will be attending for a couple extra hours each of those days, so I'm looking forward to getting some time to sew and be creative and (hopefully) blog again.

I have made a few things over the past couple months, although my sewing machine has been collecting dust for the last 4 or 5 weeks. After I made my flat-bottom zipper pouch back in the spring, I tried out Anna's (Noodlehead) open wide zipper pouch tutorial to make this...

My oldest is using it as a toiletry bag. I made the medium, and it's the perfect size. I had previously made a toiletry bag from Michelle Pattern's ditty bag pattern, and somewhere in that post I mentioned the fact that I needed to make a second bag so the girls would each have one. Apparently that motivation took a year and three months to show up because that post was back in May of 2012! Gah!

As always, you can't go wrong with Anna's detailed instructions and photos. I like the way the zipper goes in. It's something different, and it was fun to try.

I have a few other things to share over the next few weeks. Once school gets going, hopefully I'll be around a little more often :) Hope all of you are enjoying your life right now, wherever you are.
