beginner’s luck

February 6, 2009 at 10:18 am 3 comments

Remember my  little pouch I had made for that swap I’m in.  Well, lets call that “100% beginner’s luck!”.  I was shocked and amazed at how well that pouch came out and felt 100% completely confident to go through and make myself one.

Something went terribly wrong in the process of sewing in the zipper.  It actually doesn’t really look that bad (or at least that’s what I keep telling myself) but it’s not as perfect as my first one.

I do love it though and right now I’m using it in my purse (do you know how annoying it is to find dimes in your gum packet?)  But to redeem myself and make myself feel warm and tingly again, I made some tissue cozies using a tutorial I found on Craftster (can’t find the pattern now, no matter how many times I’ve searched, nor did I bookmark it – bad girl!  tutorial found via Craftster)

(the pouch don’t look that bad, it don’t look that bad, it don’t look that bad!)

And since the tissue cozy took me all of a matter of 10 min. to make – from cutting to finishing – I decided to make each girl one as well as my Mom.

    Love the tissue cozy! Adorable. These would make great gifts as well as the little pouch you made. I like the fabric… so pretty. I’m thinking of making my swapee a project bag, something simple, but sweet…. just a thought. 🙂

    ~Lisa~ It’s a fat quarter I picked up from JoAnn’s.

    ~Chas~ eh! I sometimes get to matchy matchy. You take fabrics that I’d never dream would go together and they always come out beautiful!
