pretty {little} pouch swap 5 - finished

Ah, big sigh of relief!  It just seemed to take forever to finish my little zippy for pretty {little} pouch swap 5.  On Monday I finally got around to adding my handstitching around the designs:


Last weekend I added an inset zippered pocket to the back, using my tutorial here.


And, finally, last night I constructed the pouch and added a friendship bracelet-style zipper pull.



I just have to gather/make a few goodies to put inside it before I get it in the mail tomorrow.  I sure do hope my partner likes it!  I really like how well the Heather Ross Mendocino played with Tula Pink's new line!

I am linking up to the Handmade Parade today!  Stop by to check out some amazing handstitching.
