Brenda Miller says
The basic instructions are within the video along with what is required – the size of the pouch can be changed to suit your own purposes which will affect the requirements. But here’s a quick rundown on the basic cutting/requirements. You’ll need 2 fat quarters, 2 – 14″ zippers, 2 – 9″ x 6″ pieces of lightweight fusible fleece, 1 – 9″ x 6″ piece of fusible interfacing, thread, dull scissors, sharp scissors and basic sewing supplies.
