These bags were items 6 and 7 on my Q1 Finish Along Goals List and I am linking up with The 2015 Finish Along.

So, I feel confident now that I can make my swap item for the Sweet and Salty Easter Swap. And I feel that the recipients of these bags will be happy as well. I hope I remember to make myself one too.
My tips: Even though the tutorial says iron-on interfacing is optional I recommend doing it. I just used a light woven interfacing and it made quite a difference as far as the stability of the pouch. Also, when boxing your corners pin the seams well. And lastly, press well around the top (avoiding the zipper) before top-stitching as the final step of finishing your bag.
I hope you try out Anna's free tutorial. It's fun!
