My darling wife loves playing the lottery every week. Not anything crazy but maybe 10 or 20 dollars worth. She keeps all of her tickets and affiliated paperwork bundled up with a rubber band. It seems like every few weeks that rubber band breaks. When that happens, she'll repair said rubber band with a knot and of course in another week or two that one will also break. It's a vicious cycle. I had to put a stop to it! Here was my solution.
I ran into a great little Zipper Pouch Tutorial that Jenny Doan has from the Missouri Star Quilt Co. I know it seams like I use a lot of her tutorials. My blog sorta has them sprinkled all over the place. She just really has a simple down to earth way of explaining the art of sewing.
I already had all the supplies I needed for this fun simple project. "I actually didn't have to buy anything".
The one thing I did a little different from Jenny was that I added a liner and a little zipper pocket in the interior.
This was really a fun little project to sew together.
I had to start her off with a dollar for "Good Luck".
I had so much fun putting this little pouch together you start trying to find excuses to make another. I'm just glad I know longer have to worry about "flying rubber bands" while I drive.
Until next time....Happy Sewing! Seam Ripper Joe
