Opinions Please!!!

A while ago, I decided that I would like to add different accessories to the shop. Purses are great... but I love the little accessories! I decided to start making some pouches. Great for a makeup bag, or some small items for your purse. I love anything that helps organize. :) So here is my new pouch...




I have issues wasting my favorite fabrics, so I decided that on my first go round, I would use something simple. ;) I would have cried if it didn't work, and I had wasted some Amy Butler or Anna Maria Horner fabric! ;) So don't fret.. future version will have my usual fun style!



What do you think? The finished size is about 8x5 inches. Would you prefer larger? Smaller? Longer? Shorter? I'd love to hear your input!

Looks good - I had a thought - what about adding a little clip of some sort and some kind of loopy thingy on the inside of your totes so they could clip the pouch inside the tote so it would be easy to find?

I love those. Having different sizes available would be fun. oNe for make-up, one for change, one for - whatever....

I love the idea. I use pouches mostly when I travel. I'd like one long enough for my make-up brushes. Or a washable liner since my mineral make-up never wants to stay in the little containers. (why is that?)

Or a set of coordinating pouches. One for make-up, one for fem necessities, and maybe one for my jewelry.

Cute, go for different sizes.
More importantly though, what's the fabric you're using as your background ? I LOVE it

Thanks ladies! Note taken on MULTIPLE SIZES! Good point! Perhaps one that is the present size and one that is a bit longer, and skinnier? More like a pencil case, I guess. Okay, I am so off to sew!!!

My finished ones are 8 x 5...it's a great size. They do really well at craft shows too...;) How did you do this weekend in Detroit??

I love the little pouch! I really like what Michele suggested about adding a loop to your big bags and clips to the pouches. I tend to shy away from the big bags because I'm afraid my stuff will fall out. Or that someone will just reach in a grab my stuff. This is it's safe & secure.

Skinny & long enough for 'mother nature's necessities' would be
nice. I hate what my make-up
bag does to my pricey personals.

Ashley said...

Love them! I agree though, it would be nice to offer a few different sizes.

Karin that will be a big it in your shop. I can picture a purse,make up bag, and a key fob all matching.
For me that size would be perfect.
You go girl with your awesome creations.
