UGA Makeup Pouch (pleated)

School will be out in just a 2 weeks!  My, the time has flown this year.  I think it gets worse as we get older.  But I digress.....

We always like to send gifts to Robbie's teachers at the end of the year.  This one is for his math teacher.  She is, like us, a big UGA fan.  Robbie struggled in math this year, and Mrs. Parr helped him so much.  This is just a small token of our sincere appreciation. 

This pouch is pleated to allow for expansion when filled.  It is lined, and the seams inside are bound with bias tape.  You could serge them, but the bound seams just look nicer to me.

The tutorial for this pouch can be found at Sew4Home.  She has a really cool way of attaching the zipper.  This one took roughly an hour to complete once the pieces were all cut.  It's a very simple project and perfect for a beginner.

Thanks for stopping by.
