sewing pouches

The New Year always inspires me to get organized, and getting organized has inspired me to create some pouches--after all, they are a great way to corral stuff!
As usual, I start out making something for myself, and instead end up stocking the shop--here are a few of the results...

It seems no matter how long I have been sewing, I still make the same silly mistakes. This time I sewed together a zipper pouch with one of the lining pieces reversed. It was too far along by the time I noticed, {although my compulsive tendencies urged me to rip it out anyway} and so I finished it as is. This is my misfit pouch...

...it's about 5" x 5" ~ a good size for a coin purse, but could have other uses I'm sure. I would like to give it away to someone who doesn't mind its imperfection, so if you would like it, just tell me so in Comments--I will send it out to the first taker.

  6. I like things with little imperfections because they remind me of me! God sees all mine and still loves me.

    I hope Katy is reminded of this each time she uses the pouch.

    Thanks for the giveaway, Deb.

  10. My hands are veteran sewers, but occasionally my brain will skip a beat or two and.....voila......a silly mistake. A gentle reminder of our humanity/humility, eh? And isn't that what "handmade" is all about?

    Love your blog.

  22. Hi Deb,

    Love your blog! I just wanted to say thanks for posting about the no knead bread recipe, it's a favourite in our home, I bake a loaf once or twice a week. And the scone recipe is fabulous, I made it last night for dessert, yummy!

    Cheers,

    Alana
