Okay - so, I was looking to do two things - and, as it turned out, one was the catalyst to the other. I had some scraps that I wanted to use up, so I decided to make myself a makeup case for my purse (I'm really trying to get my purse organized, it seems, huh?). In any event. This is the little pouch/makeup case that I made. I was happy to use the extra bits of scraps that I had stuffed in an envelope for some crazy reason. I put them on top of some hand dyed fabric, stitched it all down, made the little pouch, attached a snap and called it a day! And, I love it - very practical.
And, the second thing that I needed to do was to make some type of little gifts for the teachers (7 of them, yes, 7 of them) from my girls' swim class. So - I thought that I'd make little pouches for them. All are girls/women, except one 14 year old boy, who will get candy - so, I think that they will like the pouches. Here are a few of the pouches that were made for the teachers. I did the larger pouches for the teachers that worked most directly with the girls for their lessons. I did smaller pouches for the other girls that help out, but didn't really work with my girls (didn't want to leave anyone out.
I'm thinking that I'm going to make a larger version of these pouches to hold my file folders that I lug back and forth between work and home. Think that will make me want to work?? haaaa
