Pouches

Hello friends and visitors,

I´ve missed the check-in for the Smalls SAL this month as I couldn´t get my embroidery photographed in time and have been busy making what seems like 101 sleep masks for my daughter. However I can show a couple of purses I made to hold sunglasses.


My handbag always seems to weigh such a lot, full of goodness knows what I suppose and the sturdy hard case which came with the sunglasses doesn´t help the weight problem.



I needed light softly padded pouches and used fabric scraps from stash.



A printed fabric for the backs and mixed colours on the front.  I added a piece of batting and blue cotton for the lining.



I was going to use a metal purse clasp as one of the fastenings but in the end I decided to use the yellow zip which was long enough for both pouches.  Now I just have to remember to use these pouches and not wear my sunglasses on my head like a hairband.


Some of the sleep masks I´m in the middle of making.



Thank you for popping by and looking.  Until next week.
Sheryl

  1. Changing the habit of a lifetime isn't easy, when it comes to glasses. Even with two delightful cases to choose from....

  2. Oh, my 100 sleep masks! Is your daughter a teacher, Sheryl? That was so sweet of you to help out :)

    Your new sunglass pouches are just lovely in those pretty fabrics and they are so beautifully photographed against the glasses of lemonade. Looks like the weather is still quite warm and summery for you :) Hope you have a wonderful October!

  10. OMGosh those sleep masks are so cute!! Your sunglass cases are a good idea. I am always looking for a way to rid weight from my purse. If only they would make a phone as light as paper, lol. I just love the fabric you used.
