We don't normally have a lot of candy in the house. Well, the Halloween candy (at least nothing with chocolate - because that's all eaten within hours) is still in a jar in the kitchen cupboard. This little project was inspired by my son who asks for candy from the brightly colored packages at the checkout at Target.

So, here's a little "sweet tooth" pouch. You'll need two candy pouches - I used skittles and M&Ms. You could use candy bars too (you just might need more than one per side to make it a bit bigger). You'll also need: iron-on vinyl a zipper (7 - 9" works well) two pieces of fabric for lining (each should be the size of your candy wrapper). thread, sewing machine, zipper foot, iron, X-acto knife UPDATE: Several of you have emailed me asking where to find iron-on vinyl. First, we'll put the vinyl onto our candy wrappers. Cut two pieces of vinyl slightly larger than the wrapper. Using a clean rag (or ironing cloth), iron the vinyl for 8-10 seconds on medium heat.
