I decided to try a few pouches after coming upon the 3 Bears tutorial for a "boxy pouch." These are my first ones, and I will admit they need some work. However, they are usable. I do apologize for the pictures. They need some work as well. The new camera is proving to be a challenge.
This pouch should have been rectangular. I didn't have a zipper long enough, though. I did, however, have five shorter zippers so this boxy pouch really is boxy.
Lessons learned: First, I need to use a heavier fabric or use a stiffer interfacing to make it sturdier. The first one had some light iron-on interfacing and the second was a mid-weight cotton. Neither one is really heavy enough, though. Second, I really need to try this with the longer zippers that were suggested. I'm just going to have to get to Joann's this week!
On the sock creature front, here is the first one.
It came about because I wanted to use up some of the scraps, and I do like those little red button eyes. (I really do need to figure out the new camera. These pictures suck.) I have named her Skye Bleu Pynk.
The second one is a combination of ideas I found in Stray Sock Sewing: Making One of a Kind Creatures from Socks by Daniel.
Is she not adorable? I really should name her after Daniel, so, continuing in the new style of mutilating names and the spelling of names, this is Dan'E-ella.
