The Zippy

Japanese cotton prints are some of the cutest small scale prints around.  Here we have some matroyshka dolls, ballet sheep and pandas, fat puppies, and musical dogs and sheep.  Still to come are apple trees, farm animals, multi-colour polka dots, and blue trees with little fences.  I wanted to make something small, and useful, that would show off these cute prints. I often find that if I'm just going out for a quick trip to the grocery store/coffee shop/thrift store ;0) all I need are keys and a card or some cash so, introducing The Zippy - when you just need to Zip out! There's a zipper, for starters, a loop of cotton twill tape to hold the quick-release key holder to the side and it's lined, with polka dots and a georgianna label inside. So far the coffee shop patrons are loving them. Guess I better make some more - thanks guys!
