the Really Useful Pouch
New in the shop! This really useful pouch is ready to ship out to you!!
Zippered top. Wristlet strap. Fully padded with felt.
One of a kind. Hand made with fabric strips.
Opening measures 7" long.
9.5 " tall.
SO they have these things at Staples called "really useful boxes."
It has become sort of a joke every time we go there.
"Look Mom, there's a medium sized really useful box. I bet it's really useful."
I have been making these padded pouches originally meant for ereaders.
But here's the thing. I don't have an ereader, but something about them is just so cute and perfect that I felt left out and started using them for other things. I was a little JEALOUS.
Last weekend I went away and used it for a makeup bag. It's padding kept my glass bottle toiletries safe.
My daughter likes to throw a MP3, cell, chapstick, change purse and a pack of gum in hers.
I couldn't find my eyeglass case and decided to throw my glasses into one.
It is the perfect size for a point and shoot camera.
See what I mean? It is really useful!
I just wish I could come up with a more clever name.
What would you call it??
Some ideas why you need one:
*It's really cute and useful, compact and happy.
*eyeglasses and sunglasses can both fit inside it at the same time!
*It will protect your electronic gadgets. MP3, cell, camera goodies.
*Use it as your point and shoot camera bag.
*It's padding keeps your toiletries nice and safe.
*maybe it's a "are you there God? It's me Margaret time" and you need a friend to hold your necessities.
*It works as a clutch purse.
*It will hold a book, and the notebook to take notes.
*OF course it will hold your ereader too.
I plan on added more of these to the shop in this patchwork style. It is a great use of scraps. A fun way to play with color, or a way to get some of that more expensive fabric in without breaking the bank! Most will be ready to ship and one of a kind. There will be the small size that fits the regular sized ereaders and the larger size for the iPad ones.
Any ideas on what you would call them?
