Zippered Pouches and Soupçon Progress!

Yesterday was a rainy Sunday, so I decided to make a couple of zippered pouches.  I used the tutorial so generously put up by Noodlehead!  Open Wide Zippered Pouch appealed to me so much because you can see inside  the pouch so very easily.  I made one for myself and one for my daughter.  This one is my daughters.  I loved the fun print.
The inside fabric has clocks on it.
This one is mine, because I love cats.
 Look at the fun mice on the inside.
The tab on the zipper has a mouse riding a bicycle.  What a hoot.  I could not resist fussy cutting the little critter.
 Karen, over at faeries and fibres is starting another QAL.  This one involves lots of hexies.  I am so excited to start this next QAL because her designs are wonderful and her tutorials are just top drawer.  So I needed to progress MAJORLY on my Soupçon.  The pieced border was holding me up.  I just had to make the time to gather the fabrics and cut them out.  Once that was done, the borders go together really well.  I am now working on the hexagons for the next border.  Im feeling the pressure to get this done before her new QAL.  Hop on over to Karen's blog - you won't be sorry you did.
