Gathered (Puffy) Pouches

Here is something new I came up with. How cute are these zipper pouches? I gathered the fabric about 3 inches along the curvy bottom, so the pouches have a slight puffy look. The interiors are not gathered, so you won't lose small items in the fabric.

I originally wanted to make a smaller size purse with this shape. But I thought I would draw up a smaller version first to see how it looks and to make sure it would work. I've enlarged my 'pattern' and I'm sewing it together now. If it turns out cute I'll share it here (and put it on Etsy). If it's horrible you'll never see it!!
