Let me first say: I do not stay up late to sew. I generally do not sew after dark. I don’t do much of anything after dark besides read or sit and maybe embroider and watch tv. But tonight was different. I started these little pouches (tutorial found here) this afternoon and as I was sitting on the couch eating what was left of my birthday pie I thought, I have got to finish those because they are just too darn cute! That said, these were totally fun to make and so easy and yet so adorable!
I’ve had this tutorial bookmarked for a long time and needing a good birthday gift for a little friend of ours and something to put in the chick’s Easter basket, these little bags fit the bill.
The tutorial doesn’t include instructions for a “handle”, but after I had them done I thought they really needed something. I ended up making buttonholes on the ends and then just knotting the fabric ends to make it stay.
I am thinking about making a few little doll peg people to put in these little purses. But we’ll see how the next few days (and nights) play out.
