Perfect for pencils, sewing & craft supplies, trinkets, or other small treasures, these zippered pouches are fun to make and handy to have around. The boxy shape holds more than you'd think, the zipper keeps everything secure, and the basket handles make for easy handling and hanging (they also use up leftover zipper bits!).
