I went to the quilt store to get some wool so I could embroidery a little snowman and ended up getting a kit to make some window pouches. The only problem is they were out of the pattern to make them.
This is what they look like. And this is the one time that I was ready to purchase a pattern so i wouldn't have to play the guessing game and they were out of it!! so I just bought the kit and went home and brainstormed.
I messed up on the first pouch so I had to use fabric from my stash.
This is what I came up with after about an hour of trial and error.
I took measurements for the size I wanted and then added some inches to the side to be able to fold over for the binding. It actually goes really fast once you figure it out.
When you sew using the clear plastic you will want to have material on the top and on the bottom otherwise it does not slide through your machine.
You can't really see the clear window part because....well, its clear.
But here we are! (I know i'm the worse blogger by not showing details)
but I shouldn't show details anyway because there is a pattern for it. (even though I didn't use the pattern-not by choice though)
I'm going to make quite a few of these to give to my girlfriends.
I'm going to make some a a little longer to put some nail files in them and maybe a few hershey kisses.
This one I'm going to give away with some perfume samples. So cute right?
I love them..I love the little window.
You can also fill them with hershey kisses...just make sure you put them where you dog can't reach!
I had put these in my work bag to take to work and my dog got into my bag and pulled this out. He tried to get to the hershey kisses and wasn't too successful....Good on my part though because the bag held up!
And here is my next project. I think it so cute to hang up during christmas time...however I probably wont have it completed till easter :( Thats the way Life goes.Update: more pouches
