This is another pattern I got from the Cute Stuff book. It is very simple. It only took about 30 minutes to complete. I think I'll offer this as another option for my sewing club girls. I have taught 2 sisters who are from Japan. They have many bags like this that they use for everything. I think I might make some in different sizes. My nephews may each need one of these!
I also made this the other day for my sewing club. I think this will be a nice project to start out with to get them used to the sewing machine again. I think this took at max 20 min. I found this SUPER easy tutorial from twelve22 last year and LOVE it! I have made about 25 pouches of different sizes with this tutorial. One day I hope to own a zipper foot. That would make things sooooo much easier!
