First up...meet the Pleated Pouch!!
I got the pattern and directions for this cute guy from Skip To My Lou!
For the bride-to-be...I chose to use a "Bride" printed white and pink bandana
with some coordinating polka-dot pink fabric!
I added some stranded crystals for a zipper pull and it turned out adorable!
Next up is a mini wristlet...I used Anna's Lil Cutie Pouches Tutorial for the basic pattern and layout. I'm not going to lie--this is one of my FAVORITE "pouch" tutorials. It is a great "layout" in creating any style of clutch. I just added a strap and pocket, a ruffle/ribbon accent to the front, a cute ziper pull and enlarged the dimensions.
It is so stinkin cute I can hardly stand it--the fabric is adorable. I made this for Leslie at work who bakes yummy creations on the side from home. She wanted something to take on her deliveries to hold her cash, phone and some business cards.
Stay tuned for other clutch/wristlet/purse/wallet tutorials that I may come across!!
