For the fabric I purchased a set of 3 generously sized tea towels from Dunhelm Mill for £5.99. I felt bad cutting into them but it was cheaper to buy fabric like this rather than off the roll. There is the added bonus of the fabric having washing instructions with it too. The packaging was wrapped in a lovely red tape so I used a piece of it to make a side tab.
I don't know if I would make this particular pouch again as the instructions were confusing (even my tutor said so!) but I will definitely be making more lined and zipped pouches in the future. I felt a real sense of achievement learning to sew in a zip rather than take the easy way out of sewing on a button enclosure as I would have done previously.
