  • Scissors
  • Yellow thread
  • Sewing Needle
  • Zipper
  • Glue gun
 
Instructions:
1. Lay zipper flat, right side up.Line up one yellow circle and sew small stitches, affixing the zipper to the circle.
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 

2. Sew the other circle onto the other side of the zipper.
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 

3. With the pouch inside out, sew the circles together along the outer edge.
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 

*Leave the zipper partially unzipped so you can flip the right side out once done sewing.
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 

4. On the outside of the pouch, use hot glue to attach the heart, eyes, and mouth.
