I copied this idea straight from Heather of Beauty That Moves. I have been wanting to do an overhaul of our finances for a while now, and I know from experience that when all else fails, the 'envelope' system works. Well, envelopes get all torn and nasty, and I thought the idea of making fabric pouches was a fantastic one.
In an attempt to put the kibosh on our spending, I decided to make my own rather than purchase them from her shop. However, if you think these could work for you and you're not a sewer, you can purchase them from her here.
I used this tutorial for making a lined zippered pouch with 6" zippers, and added a 1.5" strip of linen to the front. I embroidered the letters instead of stamping them, and am really happy with they way they turned out.
