These measurements are just FYI to get an rough idea what you will have finally. You can use your fabric square in any sizes actually. That means this project would be so great to use up fabrics in your stash. Or you can use fabric napkins or silk scarves you won't use anymore. (A good thing about using those items is you don't need to hem your square.) I made the small pouch with a piece of fat quarter fabric. So if you've been saving prettiest fat quarters in your stash, it is the time to use them!
You can find the tutorial with lots of photos here. Soon you will find out how easy and simple it is. I hope you'll enjoy making your own beautiful pouches. Feel free to ask in your comment if you have any questions. Happy new sewing year!!!
By the way, I cooked "Japanese new year's day brunch dishes" spending two last days of 2013. I usually go to Chicago to get some ready made food from Japanese super market. But this time we were too busy to go shopping in the big city so I needed to cook everything using ingredients I can get here in South Bend. It was tough and I couldn't make all I wanted. And also they didn't taste perfect as I expected. But I think it was good enough and I will be better next time.
We are having a big snow storm since yesterday. We have about 12 inches snow on the ground and the temperature will go down to -17°F tonight! We already know School will be closed tomorrow. (It was supposed to be the first school day in 2014! I want Nina going back school pretty bad :p) But the trees are sooooo beautifully covered with snow. Everything looks like in the winter wonder land. I noticed that I sort of like having a little snow storm (amazing!). I hope you all have a good start of the week and stay warm. Thank you for reading.
