Zippered pouch for colored pencils

I made this zippered pouch following this tutorial from Sew Minty. I liked the idea of the zipper tabs but I didn't leave enough room for them to avoid being caught up in the stitching of the side seams which created a bulky situation at either end of the zipper. I do love the contrast of the butterfly fabric with the striped fabric and the bright color of the zipper. I also like the look of the top-stitching near the zipper which Sew Minty did in her tutorial. I lined mine with a piece of white felt since I didn't have any interfacing on hand. I'll try it again and leave more room for the zipper tabs.
