My Bday is 11/1 so Halloween I decorate and dress up and my gandbabies trick or treat me and I also celebrate the whole mo of Nov because with Grown Kids, my bday isnt over until I have seen them all.. LOL 

Now on to the lined zipper pouch tutorial I promised!

Details: This tutorial does not include dimensions. You can make this pouch any size you want, with the width being determined by the length of your zipper. For both these pouches I used a 7" zipper. The gray twill one is approximately 6" wide by 6.5" and the flowered one is approximately 6.5" wide by 9" long. You can use a longer zip too, and just trim it to the width of your pouch. You can use cotton, home decor, twill - pretty much anything for this pouch and its lining.
