  10. I've made that tartankiwi zipper pouch (it's small, but really adorable) - and I recently bought the pattern for a very similar fish zipper bag (the one I got is for a shark rather than a fish). I'm working on toddler aprons now for gifts - that tea towel apron intrigues me so I'll have a peek to see what they've done - that would make a fun project (and wouldn't need to be lined!) :D

  11. Love all the different 'pouch' ideas. That fish one is funny and perfect for a guy who likes to fish. Thanks for sharing and linking up to Tips and Tricks.
