A little something for me. . ..

I saw this tutorial and had to try to make it. So I put off finishing organizing my craft closet again and started cutting and sewing willy nilly on Saturday afternoon.

I should have been exhausted that day because we attended a high school graduation and several graduate receptions which all had amazing food and lots of fun visiting. At the last reception I caved and drank some coffee because it smelled so amazing and it was a chilly and dreary day just right for drinking coffee. I love coffee. . .but apparently coffee does not love me anymore. I was kind of jittery all evening with lots of energy to burn so I made a cute pouch. (Pouch is a terribly annoying word isn't it? )

fabrics used: Freshcut by Heather Bailey and Olive Rose by Valori Wells

I did not do the optional pockets on the inside for credit cards, because I originally thought it would be great to hold my garage sale money, but it turned out a little bigger than I expected. I'm not good at translating written dimensions to what size it will actually turn out to be.

However, it is a great size for a small make-up bag which I really needed. Because I don't wear a lot of make-up it will be perfect. (Okay, I admit that I only wear make-up to church so if you ever see me in Walmart or at the library just walk on by and pretend you didn't see me ☺)

Now what else can I sew to get out of organizing?


  1. OOO! Very pretty! I love the contrasting patterns you've used!

  2. That's adorable!!

    I'll be your no-makeup-in-walmart buddy. I usually only wear it for church too.

    I say it's because I'm too busy, but it's really because I'm too lazy.

  3. Hi! I received the gorgeous purse that I won from you today!! It's gorgeous! I really like it and I actually have a pair of sandels that matches it perfectly!
    Thank you so much, I will blog about it very soon!
    Hugs, Cindy s
