Wine Cork Zipper Pouches

Here is a set of 9 wine cork zipper pouches I made for one of my customers in California.  These are for a bride and her bridesmaids.  I believe the couple is getting married in Napa Valley. 

This is the same customer that ordered 9 weenie dog zipper pouches last spring.  I love when customers come back!  Thanks for stopping by!

Graduation Zipper Pouches

Every custom order has a story. A church youth leader in Houston wrote me recently and was looking for graduation gifts for a group of girls she has mentored for several years. All 7 girls are headed to college and she wanted zipper pouches.  I didn't have pouches designed for 3 of the 7 schools so we came up with some deisgns.  The schools were Texas A&M. Baylor, NYU, U of H, MSU, UT and UHD.

Here are all 7 completed pouches

My Etsy store offerings grow because of requests like this.  Here is the pouch for the University of Houston

University of Houston Downtown (mascot is gators)

And, New York University.
Thanks for stopping by.  Hope you are having a great week.

I received a wonderful award a few weeks ago, Top 25 Women in Business in our city.  This award is from the Chamber of Commerce.  This is for my work at the City of McKinney and the volunteer work I do in the community.  I am truly humbled to have been chosen. 
Here is a nice article a a picture of all of the other ladies honored.

Midwestern State Univ Zipper Pouch

With graduation season upon us, I am getting lots of requests for zipper pouches for graduating seniors.  Only the big schools have licensed fabric so I have started designing pouches for some of the other schools.

Here is the pouch I made for a friend's daughter going to Midwestern State University in Wichita Falls, Texas.  Katie is graduating tomorrow and I am so excited for her.  The school colors are maroon & gold and the mascot is a mustang so I didn't have to go on a wild chase for a charm that was out of the ordinary.   This is actually a school I considered when I was in high school. 

This pouch and others are all available in my Etsy store.  Thanks for stopping by.

Love to Dance Zipper Pouches

I had a request from one of my Mom friends for 5 zipper pouches with a dance theme for her daughter's dance instructors.  Right away I started looking for fabric and found one that matched the colors used throughout the dance studio.

Here are the five zipper pouches.   I could not find a "dance" charm so we opted for name initial. 

I used a hot pink dot fabric for the lining. 
I used the "Love to Dance" fabric for the back. 

Thanks for stopping by.
