Perfecting Pouches

In case you were worried that with all the leprechaun nonsense going on around here I have neglected my mission on perfecting zippered pouches and the slouchy corner problem- Have NO fear! I am on the case. They are getting better and better! I am hoping to have a tutorial up soon on how I have achieved my magnificently crisp corners. 🙂 But, as I have been searching high and low and clicking on every zipper pouch link and tutorial I can find- I am realizing that I am perhaps the only person out here who even cares what the top corners of a zipper pouch look like. Am I really the only one who thinks they should be square?

On a lighter note- this is the inside of the pouch/wallet. I am totally loving my new cash stasher! All the fabrics were on sale for $2.49 a yard at Joann’s- Yippee! I love me some cheap fabric.
Happy weekend!

    It seems like all of my zippered bags suffer from slouchy corner syndrome and it drives me crazy! I cannot wait for your tutorial!!

    Oh, and could you add in how to insert a label so that it is right side up? Sometimes I get it right, sometimes I don't!

    Super cute! I love the inside! Hey, Amy, where did you get the tags for your bags? I have been looking for a place, but with no luck.

    Have a great week!

    I care, but I don't think the people I've made them for care or even notice:) I hope you can figure it out.

    I landed on your blog looking exactly for a tutorial on how to make my corners straight, as I have had no luck in doing so, so far, and I'd be really greatful if you show all of us on the quest for perfect corners your way of getting straight, crisp corners 🙂
