Beth here to share with you this awesome, but quick and easy Faux Quilted Monogram Zippered Pouch – make it in 30 minutes!
I found the zippered pouch on clearance at my local office supply store and bought all six – SCORE. I love a deal and when it is cute and able to be altered – DOUBLE SCORE! The pouches already had the gold band at the bottom and plain canvas on top, which I thought would look great with the aquamarine and lilac color scheme.
I got so excited making this project, that I kind of forgot to take any step out photos, sorry.
Load Ann Butler Designs ColorBox Background Basics Picnic with ColorBox Crafter’s Ink in Lilac, mist with water, then line up in center of zippered pouch and stamp. Note ink will take a bit longer to dry on the gold band.

This pouch is going to be for my niece, Marlee and I wanted to dress it up a bit more because she is a girly-girl, so I picked out 2 fancy black vintage buttons I inherited from my Grandmother’s (her Great-Grandmother) stash and sewed them in the center of the Aquamarine squares with embroidery floss and tied the ends in a bow.
Embellish with a black satin bow tied to the zipper!
I am going to fill this 30 Minute Faux Quilted Zippered Pouch with craft supplies for my niece, because she is a crafter too!
Can’t wait to share the story about the vintage buttons with her! My Grandmother was a sewer and not only did I inherit her vintage Singer sewing machine, but all of her buttons as well. She kept all of her buttons in a English Biscuit tin and I can remember just running my hands through all of those buttons when I was a kid thinking that they were like jewels! If she was sewing a top or dress for me then I got to pick out the buttons to use from the tin – PURE MAGIC!
