These zipper pouches are great projects. I love the canvas pictured in the tutorial. I make some zippered pouches very similar to these and one bit of advice I can pass along is that you should consider purchasing a larger zipper. It's much easier to work with and maneuver a slightly larger one such as a 14". The price difference is very small and it makes a big difference.

Great idea! I just made my first one for my daughter for Christmas! I added a strap to carry it and made it a bit bigger and made a matching coin purse to put inside! I was a bit worried about the zipper because I just used what I had on hand, one of those invisible type, but it worked just fine! Not too difficult but yet it looks really sophisticated and classy!
