Made this zip pouch a few weeks back. In case you’ve noticed the number of zip pouches this year, that is my fallback. Last year was quilts. This year is zip pouches. I still make quilts … and everything .. but if I want a project, this year I’m aiming towards zip pouches.

I have a nice, wide format printer dedicated to artwork. However, you have to print something once or twice a week to keep the heads clear (less ink than cleaning cycles), so I printed out this watercolor of mine onto cotton, then heat set it and bathed it in fixative. Then made a zip pouch from it. All about these little opportunities.

The finished product. 8″x 7.5″ flat.

Fully lined in matching cotton and has an interior pocket for small bits.

Attached a bead to the zip pull for ease of grabbing. Loop on the side for attaching.

The creature.

This item has been listed in my Etsy shop, if you want it for yourself.

Sometimes I ride the wave of creativity and throw paint on a page as it speaks to me and move on. Then, hours, days, months later I’ll go back and see more to be had with it. This is such. I like his fuzzy, amorphous existence.
