It was a friend’s birthday recently and I decided to make her something a little different. I had recently purchased some cute robot zipper pulls so I had an idea…..I made a super cute zippered pouch.

It was made from an upcycled wool sweater that I had purchased at a second hand (aka. cheap!) store and then felted in the washing machine. It was cheaper than if I had  purchased a ball of wool yarn and I didn’t have to take the time to knit or crochet the yarn into a fabric.

There are two things that I love about the finished pouch. One is the zipper pull itself. Isn’t it adorable!?!?!

But what is my favourite part of it? The heart lights up!

And last but certainly not least, any gift for my friend Melanie wouldn’t be complete with some sort of zebra print!

One week to the move! Ack! So much to do, so little time!!!
