I made a little pouch to hold my project.
I make Christmas ornaments each year and will post those later. I am big on working on them during the summer and then having them done. What I make depends on what craft mood I am in that year. I have made felt bears, crocheted stars, and mini felt mittens and stockings. I try to make something different each year. This year I am trying beaded snowflakes. So, this pouch was the perfect size for all my beads and tools. (it is roughly 5"h x 4"d x 6"l)
I was working with 5" charm squares and the poor little birdy lost his head in the seam. I really couldn't leave it like that, so i embroidered an outline if his body and added his head back on. It gave a nice textured effect. I also added some small blue beads to the feathers in the front for a little bling.
If you want to make one, I followed the tutorial at Three Bears. I just sewed together a few charm squares and a jelly roll strip before cutting out the required dimensions for the sides. Super easy to make. Really easy to pull together from your stash. All I bought was the zipper. I just started working with them and haven't added them to my 'keep in stock' list.
