For this BOY version, I sewed a blue ribbon across one of the outside fabric pieces. (Just lay on top and sew along both edges of the ribbon).

Fuse the interfacing to the inside fabric. Layer your fabric. Inside fabric on the bottom facing up, zipper along top edge facing up, outside fabric facing down. With a zipper foot, sew along the top edge attaching one side of zipper. Repeat steps, layering and sewing other side of zipper to remaining fabric.

Un-zip the zipper half way. Now pin the front fabric pieces together and the back fabric pieces together. Sew along the outer edge all the way around, leaving a small opening.

Turn the pouch right-side-out through the opening. Sew the opening closed.

Push the inside fabric down inside to create the lining. Zip open and closed just for fun.

Now for a GIRL, you might need to dress it up a tiny bit more.

First sew one ribbon across the front of one of the outside panels. Then sew a narrow ribbon on top of the first. Make 2 circles of ribbon (the 2 ribbons layered), one a little larger than the other. Sew the ends of each circle together.

Pinch the circles together in the middle and stitch across the center, creating a bow.

Stitch the bow to the front panel along the ribbon and sew on a button.

And…there you have it! Our final…not to mention fabulous, project of our Back to School, A-Z Series. Thank you Emily for sharing with us this great little pouch! This pouch is a great size, great organizer and great for those little fingers and backpacks all the way up to your high school or college aged students. For more fabulous tutorials by this super lady, make sure to visit her at Everyday Art where her and her sister-in-law are always cooking up something yummy, sewing up something spectacular or partying it up with their kiddos!

Being a mama of three little peeps, I definitely have a BIG mama bag that gets disorganized a lot. With the help of my little one’s little hands going in and out of my bag multiple times a day and stirring all of it’s contents around, it is nearly impossibly to find anything FAST…or sometimes at all. Little pouches, like this Easy Zipper Pouch, I have found, are my new best friends and life savers! Here are a few more fabulous little bags that will keep your sanity, keep you organized and keep you from growling at those sweet little hands as they stir and stir and stir!
