Dumpling Pouch

My daughter gave me a special order request for a:
  • 'dumpling pouch' made from 
  • a sturdier fabric with an tapestry or rug, vibe.(something like the rugs in Hollister)





We were able to find this fabric in the upholstery section-not something that would be my normal dream fabric on such a small project incorporating zippers...However for my first try of this pattern, I think it turned out pretty nice!
I only had to buy 1/3 of a yard and I think I probably could have gotten away with a 1/4. Maybe the nice lady just cut generously?
In any case I have enough to make more because of course, upholstery fabric is very wide(and this pouch is very small as you can see by the acorns ; )
So expect at least one more, more or less like this one, in the shop very soon. Would you like one?
What do you think about the print? I know it's not my usual style, but I think it helps spark some new ideas and creativity to use something you normally wouldn't. And I think I like it 
: )
