A tiny patchwork pouch

4 Oct

Had scraps, made a thing.

It came out much better than it had any right to, frankly.

Once upon a time, I wore a bunch of 100% cotton shirts to work, every blasted day. So, when COVID came around, I had plenty of material to make masks for a bunch of people. Then, of course, I had leftover material. Add some denim from old jeans, a short zipper from a leather wallet, and watching a few YouTube videos at the right time, and here we are.

It’s a tiny thing, but the perfect size to hold my sewing clips, and not something I’d feel weird about tossing around and getting dirty, an all around win.
