Hello friends. I have a different project for you today. I was going to try this idea last year and life got in the way. I kept the idea in the back of my head and I'm getting a start now. Christmas can be such a busy time of year and some people can be hard to buy for. Also, with a rather large extended family I usually run of time to make things in the weeks leading up to Christmas. I decided to make a gift basket for each of our extended "families" and make something to go in them each month of the year. I've been going through all the ideas I have found and picked one for January.
I was browsing Pinterest (love that place) and found a link to this great little lined, zippered pouch. Her directions are very clear and her pictures are very helpful. Here's my first one:
This one is for my sister-in-law. I really want to make things this year using the vast stash in my sewing room/studio. The only things I had to buy for all 8 pouches was zippers. I had all the fabric and the interfacing. These are a great size and the seams on the inside are fully concealed, very professional looking. I was hoping to have all 8 done by today but this week has been bitter cold and snowy. I had my fabric cut out but had no intention of venturing out for zippers. So after a long day of shopping and housework I put this one together in about 45 minutes. I think I will work on more after I mop the floors ;)
I think that's about it. I'll be back next month on the 25th with another project! Thanks for taking a peek!
Blessings & Hugs,
