I have been making a lot of pouches lately. I love making different shapes and styles and trying new patterns for them.
Last week, I actually made myself a set of pouches. I had acquired a tangled pile , which included my I Phone usb cord, ear buds, camera usb cord , flash drives, and a spare I Phone power cord. It was time to get that all organized .
Fabrics Selected: various Denyse Schmidt DSQuilts
My favorite is the gray and cream dots! But I can't walk away from a turquoise zipper!!
Large Pouch: I decided on the large size of the Open Wide Zippered Pouch, by Anna of Noodlehead. I used this tutorial for sizing the large pouch.

Ear buds: I used the tutorial by Erin, of Dog Under My Desk for my Circle Zip Earbud Pouch. These are so dog-gone cute! I made a loop in the lining of my big zippered pouch, to attach the earbud pouch to.
Zip drives: A perfect way to use my "uh -oh, this pouch is too small for my I Phone with its protective case" , that I made last week. It was good practice for putting a snap onto the flap.

I keep my pouch set right beside my laptop now. It is easy to find the right cord, and to grab the whole pouch for when I travel! I can't help but smile when I see these bright colors and some dots!!
