Double Zipper ID Pouch with Cricut

doublezipid-3.jpg

Hi there!  I am happy you are here.  It is a beautiful Sunday evening here in South Bend, IN and I just finished whipping up a few of these Double Zipper ID Pouches.

doublezipid-11

I used my Cricut Maker (you can use the Cricut Explore, too) to cut the Cricut Faux Leather, fabric and even the clear vinyl window.

I created this pattern with travel in mind, whether it’s a simple as a trip to the grocery or travel through an airport.  It’s got a secure pocket for your ID and a larger, middle pocket for cash, keys or whatever you may need.

You can use the handy side clip to add a wrist strap, or to hang on a bookbag, tote bag, keys, etc.

I think this is going to be another great stocking stuffer idea!!

I’ve got a Cricut Design Space file for you so you can get started creating right away.  Click here to get the Design Space FIle  . 

If you don’t have a Cricut (you need one), I’ve got a PDF for you.  You can grab it HERE.

Today, we are going to start with this very basic simple pouch.  I think it is super cute and I can think of a million uses.

Hey there!  I wanted to pop on here really quickly and share with you a fast and easy project using more of the paint drop cloth that I used in the previous RAE DUNN INSPIRED PILLOW COVER Tutorial and also in the SHABBY FABRIC BASKET Tutorial. (Click to visit those block posts).

This $4 drop cloth is providing me with fabric for tons of projects!  This zip pouch is perfect for personalization (think EasyPress Iron On).

If you’re a Cricut user I even have a Design Space pattern for you.  You can get that HERE.

Camping, anyone?

camping bag-1.jpg

Happy Saturday!  I wanted to share another idea using my latest pouch tutorial (Version 4).  I created this camping bag.  I thought it would be really fun to stuff with things like a flashlight, bug spray, sunscreen, wet wipes, etc..  I have a lot of friends who enjoy camping and this will make a perfect gift.   They can hang it right in their campsite so everyone has all of the necessities right at their fingertips!  Cute, right?!!

If you missed my tutorial, you can find it here.

Happy Camping!
