Vintage, recycle - Zip pouch for knitting tools

I purchased a box of vintage fabric pieces, all very small, at an antique shop. I needed a pouch for knitting tools so put together this one. The pink and black is the vintage piece. Rick rack is also very old, from a box my sister's son found in his garage. I have quite a few old zippers that I have inherited from older women's stashes, note that this Apple Green 20 inch zipper originally cost 65 cents.
I love using old, neglected materials in my projects. Recycle, recreate. New, but connected to women who came before.

A big thank you to Anna Tolborg for posting her zipper tutorial.
