I found a fabulous Open Wide Zippered Pouch tutorial, and made four of them in a weekend - one in each size, plus an extra medium-sized. I gave one to my sister full of birthday surprises, and use the rest to keep my diaper-bag organized.
What did I learn? Zippers aren't that scary! Take my time, use a zipper foot, and I can make neat things!
So while I was on my zipper kick, I decided I needed a camera bag, especially for traveling this summer. Usually my camera just gets knocked around in my purse, so a little padded zipper pouch with room for batteries could come in handy. I used one tutorial for the math, to make it exactly the size I wanted. Then I used this tutorial to put it together, plus a little from this tutorial for the handles.
