Just a little sewing project to share today. These bags are made from the Lil cutie pouch tutorial by Anna Graham at Noodlehead. These are the third and fourth pouches I’ve made this spring. They are really fast.
The pouch is intended to hold a phone, money, makeup or other little things, with a key ring on the outside. The original tutorial is from 2009 and phones have gotten bigger since then. In order to fit a regular iPhone 6 inside, I enlarged the pieces of the black and white pouch a bit. I also cut the lining of both pouches to be 1/4″ shorter than the exterior pieces because the linings bunched up at the bottom of the first two I made.
The black and white one is for my sister’s birthday, matching a bag I made for her a while back. The other one will go to E’s preschool teacher. I might make another pouch for myself or I might just dive in to a project in Anna’s new book.
Also, I thought it would be more fun to take pictures with the kids helping. Ha!
