So here is the little pouch I mentioned earlier. The pattern is Atkinson Designs' Cash and Carry. I bought a kit with enough fabric and a zipper to make one of the pouches, but the pattern actually includes instructions for four different designs. I made the Pocket zip to hold store discount cards and punch cards, which are exploding out of my wallet. It's the perfect size for that.
The only thing I don't 100% love about the pattern is that while it is lined, the inside isn't finished super nicely. It's fine for it's purpose, but it's not exactly beautiful inside. Still, it's a very cute, fast pattern with excellent instructions, and I am sure I'll be making more.
Here is a sneak peak of my current project, a purse, which became much more fun once I could monogram it. I still haven't technically finished the black pants, but wouldn't you know, the store is out of the buttons I need now, so more waiting.
