Pouching my way to bags

      I really, really want to make bags, purses. However, I seemed challenged in the 3D arena and understanding printed directions. I can follow a video just fine. I found this pouch pattern on line to download on special sale from Geta at Geta's Quilt Studio. She is from Romania which I think is cool, since I am in Buffalo, NY. Her quilts are w-a-y beyond me, but I loved this pouch. 
     I took the leftovers from my daughter's tote bag and made one. I made a bunch of mistakes (both zippers not going in the same direction- she warned about this, but it happened) that were my fault and not the pattern. When things get turned inside out, it gets dicey. Zippers are not the easiest thing for me, don't know why. But, I made it and took photos to prove it. It uses 10 x 20 fabric for the main body and the lining. Has a nice deep pocket. I will make more. Now for the purses...

It looks perfect, Linda. The zipper mistake is minor! Thank you for sharing.
