Party preparations - zipper pouches

These little simple zipper pouches were the next item on my party bag to-do list. No pattern this time just a stack of lovely organic fabric (screen printed by Showpony) that I won two years ago.

Because this fabric seemed to fray quite easily I wanted to try out french seams in an effort to make a more durable pouch. I also gave putting in zips another go and after a bit more practice and the occasional curse I managed to get my sewing machine to sew in a zip on each pouch quite neatly.

For the girls I chose the pretty flower & butterfly print as well as a couple of summer tree pouches (my favourite design in my fabric bundle) and for the boys it had to be the insect soup - nasty pattern - I hope they like them!
