I'm pretty sure I'm the first person ever to figure out zippers all on her own. This is a very complicated (not really) art (not really) and I deserve some kind of award for attempting to master it without any coaching (really, an award). I set out to make a zippered pouch this afternoon and in 15 minutes, I was finished! And, totally unusual for me, my first stab is actually cute and functioning!
It measures about 7" wide by 6" tall. I think the perfect size for a few pieces of makeup, fem hygiene products, money, business cards, candy, small bottles of liquor...whatever you want to keep contained and protected in your unorganized and crumb filled purse.
Also made these two fabulous items that I'll list in the shop tomorrow morning. We're heading out to the drive in right now to see "Wall-E" and eat homemade kettle corn. Oh yeah, I made my own kettle corn. Wish I wouldn't have discovered how easy it for two reasons. 1) I'm confident I will make it every day now and will weigh 400 pounds by Christmas (Wait! I just had a thought! I'm going to add homemade kettle corn to my list of Christmas goodies for our neighbors and friends). And 2) Now I've decided I want to have my own gourmet kettle corn cafe. Last week I was planning to open a paint your own pottery shop. The week before that it was a gourmet doughnut and coffee shop with a child friendly atmosphere. But back to the kettle corn cafe...I would have all different flavors like maple syrup, cinnamon sugar, margaritas, vanilla bean, chocolate covered. Ok, off to eat some now.
