Little Zip Pouches
I've been sewing a few zippered pouches up out of bits and pieces. They are so quick and easy. I remember when I was intimidated by zippers, but they're really not that scary. And the pouch tutorial that I follow has tabs on the end of the zip so it is perfect for beginners - not too tricky.
They are lined, so there is a tiny bit of hand sewing on the lining to finish them off, but that only takes seconds. The fabric pieces aren't big so it can use up scraps and I often pick up perfectly good zippers at op shops, so these pouches can be a frugal make too.
This is the tutorial I use (although I know this off by heart now, I've made so many): http://www.craftbuds.com/easy-lined-zipper-pouch/
There are a million different zipper pouch tutorials out there. Just google it and pick whichever one takes your fancy. Seriously, they are easy, satisfying, use up scraps and make great gifts - give one a go today!
