Green Crafts- Zipper Pouch

*sings* It's not easy being green.....
I really enjoy making "green" products. Albert and I try real hard to do our part in preserving our mother earth. A small way, is using cloth grocery bags instead of plastic. I carry this one daily: Which brings me to my next project. I have a very crafty BFF. She is the owner of this wonderful etsy shop: Madame Cupcake. This girl makes beautiful totes & zipper pouches.
She came over the other day, and taught me how to make my own zipper pouch. I attempted several times on my own, but failed. I tried to follow one from online- here is a DIY.
Once she helped me, this is what I made:
It's perfect for wipes, hand sanitizer, sunblock and tiny toys for the boy. Best of all it matches our site. lol
My next project involves these wonderful fabrics. *swoon*

I've had so much fun with "green" crafts. I have bookmarked some great blogs: Here are some of my my favorites: Green Scene, & Crafting a Green World. Go check them out.

Beautiful pouch! I am just getting back into the sewing-thing around here. I love little projects to start with. If gives you a nice sense of accomplishment and uses of your smaller pieces of material. Sort of green that way..

I wish I had a green link to share,but I will be checking back to see what everyone else posts!

I love the damask fabrics- so beautiful! The bag is beautiful, the zippered pouches are too cute as well! My fav green site is Etsy of course, I think the greenest thing to do is support handmade crafty people who are doing it themselves! There are so many rocking crafty people out there coming up with super rad ways to reuse things in beautiful ways! -e

The pouch is adorable! I love the site reusablebags.com where I bought all my sturdy grocery bags and a cute over-the-shoulder bag for any other shopping that I keep in my purse. So handy, and so "green"!
