A Pouch

Last week, before I got sick, I sewed a little. My friend, Nikki's birthday was Tuesday, so I sewed her a little zippered pouch. I realize that this is the "year of the tote," however I made her a tote last year for her birthday.

She told me a few months back that she liked the wristlets I had made for the nursing home because she liked to carry around something small. I stored that information in my brain for the past four months. And then I almost forgot about it. I woke up one morning a couple of weeks ago and it was the first thing I thought of. I love when that happens.

I used scraps of the cheery cherry fabric from Diane and lined it with, what else? Why, red gingham, of course! I still have one more project destined for the rest of the cherry fabric. For Spenser.

Wow Lera, you really stretched that cherry fabric! You have enough left for one more project?! You're good. By the way, I've been meaning to tell you how cute the smock you made for Spenser is. Adorable! Oh, and the wristlet is too cute as well.

That is such a great combination. And it looks cute in front of your skirt, too. :)
