I made a few of these little zipper pouches for my myself and some nurse buddies of mine. They are perfect for keeping extra pens, hemostats, scissors and other small personal items for work.
I carved the cute litte nurse girl out of a rubber stamp and used VersaMagic ink pads to stamp the image onto fabric. Worked pretty well.
I also used THIS great tutorial for making the zipper pouch. EASY!!! Do not fear the zipper!
