bright baggy pouch

Welcome to finish it up Friday!

I was hoping to have a quilt finished today, but that certainly didn't happen! So, this morning I finished up a little baggy pouch that I had in progress. Once again, I am thankful for the accountability that this linky party brings. I certainly needed the push to finish something. Also, there is one less pile on my craft room floor. YAY!
This is a small sized baggy pouch, which is a pattern by Aneela Hooey. It's my third one from the pattern, and probably not the last! I used a mini charm pack and scraps for the patchwork.
The inside is polka dots, of course! I added tabs to the end of my zipper to make things a bit tidier. My oldest son made a smart aleck comment about me branching out by making a zipper pouch. It made me laugh. And hey, I did branch out from my streak of pin cushion finishes...but I'll get back to those shortly! :)

One other big finish for the week. School has ended and summer vacation has begun. You can probably imagine all the fun we are having around here. Ha! I'm sure we will find our groove eventually...

Now, it's your turn! Please link up your finishes for the week. Thank you for joining me for finish it up Friday!

A friend mentioned your blog and it's going in my Feedly roll! Love your zippered pouch, and especially the zipper tab detail.Is there someplace I can learn to do that?

I like how every finish gets celebrated. I need to sink my teeth in my wips. Do you know my 36 patch from the QAL a while ago is still not done? Eeks! Happy end of school!
