Stop Pinning & Start Doing {Charming Pencil Pouch}

Welcome back for the 2nd edition of "Stop Pinning & Start Doing".  I hope you all have been putting good use to that Pinterest inspiration.  I know last week I said I would be doing my inspiration board this week, but it's not quite finished yet, so I tackled this cute little project first. 

Let me get this out of the way first.  I DID use this blog's tutorial for this project.  So I'm just sharing with you my finished project...crooked lines & all.  I am in no way going to show you how it's done.  Not my idea...not going to take credit for it.
So here, my friends, is the tutorial.  <--click there.

And here is my finished product!

This project gave me inspiration & I created a few different variations.  Mostly because I had a bunch of different size zippers I needed to use.

Coin purse...

Marker pouch...

Think stocking stuffers.

These really did not take long at all.  I could make one in about 20 minutes & the tutorial is super easy to follow.  Beginning sewers could easily complete this project.  It is a great sewing blog to follow.  I highly recommend it! 

Thanks again Pinterest!

Now stop pinning & go make something!


  1. These are great, I could probably whip up a few with my scrap material.

  2. Really cute pouches! I'm working on setting up my craft room right now & this is making me get ideas for some starter sewing projects. Thanks for sharing!

    [so glad Ballistic Gypsy showed me this blog!]

  3. LOVE it!! I really do need to get started on some of my Pinterest inspirations. Maybe once we get all settled in our new house!

  4. So, do I get one for Christmas? :)
