open wide zippered pouch - with bunnies!

Finally, I got around to trying out this tutorial! I've been wanting to make one of these pouches ever since they started popping up all around the blogosphere! I made this one for my friend Sanna who is a great fan of bunnies.

So they were the key factor in fabric selection.

I teamed this lovely Megumi Sakakibara fabric featuring bunnies with a Westfalenstoffe print from the Kitzbühel collection.

More bunnies there! :-)

To tie the two together, I picked this floral print from London by Dena Designs. The zipper pull is another Kitzbühel print.

No bunnies, but squirrels are cute, too! Making the pouch was really simple following the tutorial and I'll definitely make more of them! I'm glad I didn't skip the interfacing on the main fabric, because it's nice the fabric has a bit more weight to it, highlighting the design and the boxed corners of the pouch.
