So my project is finally complete! I thought it would be fun to do a little wrap-up post where I handed out awards to some of my favorite projects of the series.
It’s the last one! I can hardly believe it! Of course the last one had to be a good one… I haven’t made a wallet in this series up to this point, so I chose the Necessary Clutch wallet (with the wristlet strap add-on) that I have been seeing everywhere. I thought it might work for carrying around a small amount of EPP, but if not, it would also work for a wallet.
I found this pouch in a book by Yoko Saito and immediately knew I wanted to make it. I love love love this pouch, even though this is totally not my normal color palette. The instructions were in the Japanese style (almost no words—just brief illustrations, no seam allowances on pattern pieces, and all measurements in metric), so there was a bit of puzzling, but I managed to muddle through!
So I’d been admiring the Craft Passion Wide open pencil case for awhile, but the thought of doing piping on the outside of a bag around curves was making me hesitate (for good reason, apparently!). I finally decided to just try it and hope for the best!
I’ve been resisting making these macaron zipper pouches I’ve seen all over the internet because they looked really putzy and their small size didn’t look super useful. But I finally broke down (the cuteness won me over). I’m glad I did!
