Vinyl zig zaggy zip pouch - on the cheap!

Bought this great strawberry print vinyl in LA the other day for just $2 a yard.  I needed a little something to go in a secret sister gift for Rebekah's volleyball game today, so this is what I made.

A strawberry zip pouch.  Fold the vinyl and cut it at 6" x 10".  The fold is at the bottom of the bag. 

 Sew the zipper in at the top by folding under a bit of the edge of the vinyl and zig zagging in onto the zipper.  I had to trim the end of the zipper off a bit.  Tuck the ends of the zipper under as you sew, but point them towards the bottom of the bag just a bit so the zipper can zip all the way open and closed without getting caught on the folded under ends.  Zig zag up both sides, and you're done.

 I think what I like most about this project is that it took less than 10 minutes to make and it costs about .35 cents.  The vinyl was only $2.00 and the zipper was .25 cents.  Since I only used a tiny bit of the vinyl, I'm coming in at only .35 cents!!  Love it.

Super cute for a pencil pouch so you can see all that's inside!
