I’ve been continuing my short-attention-span project kick, so very quickly, here they are! I made a sewing kit for my sister’s birthday present using Michelle’s zip pocket pouch pattern.

I added felt to hold needles and two twill loops in the open pocket to attach a pair of snip scissors and a bobbin of thread. I also put a thimble and extra colors of thread in the zippered pocket. The smallest size of this pouch is a nice size for carrying around some sewing essentials without taking up a lot of room in your bag!

Since I bought the ditty bag pattern recently during a $5 Friday, I made a couple of them to help justify the purchase. :> These are both the largest size; the blue one is for holding my after-having-given-birth toiletries, and the red one is for my parents (my dad declined to offer input on the fabric, so I chose what I thought my mom would like).

Finally, I made a couple more kleenex pouches for another friend who uses them. I still haven’t made one for me, though!

  1. Small projects are so fun. They make me feel like I’ve actually accomplished something! All of yours are super cute, but I especially love the ditty bags. Funny that your dad didn’t have a fabric preference…

  2. Oh my – you have been SO busy! I love it!

    The little bags and kleenex pouches are so cute!! I also love the bag you made in the previous post with the twisty latch and the red pocket. Love the red pocket!

    And your Naruto pillow! Very cool! I did Minecraft pillows for my son and nephews for xmas and a custom one based on my son’s alter ego!

    Thanks for sharing! Makes me want to go get busy!
