Persisting

I've been trying to come up with my own design for a little padded pouch that could be used for phones / Ipods / MP3s / Cameras etc with limited success so far.

So far, version number 5 is pretty close to what I'm looking for, but I'm not happy with the shape.... so back to the drawing board for me!

I hope my family members will like my dodgy prototypes for their handbags.

very cute! I love the fabric!

Molly said...

Oh I like them. Can't quite tell how big they are from the pictures, but they would be great to carry in your purse for mini makeup bags or for compact mirrors, nailfiles, tweezers etc. You are oh so crafty:)

It can be frustrating (and exciting) getting the idea from your head to the outside world! What you've done so far looks great. Looking forward to seeing Version 6...

The ones you have already made look pretty cool. I use pouches for everything so I can identify the items in my bags. You can never have too many:)

I really like the fabric on the one on the right. it looks like it would make a nice little pouch for hair stuff

I've always liked that tulip fabric :) I really like the look of the one in the top left corner and the middle lying down. They're all very good though. You're much cleverer than me!

We are enjoying soup weather again here. Love your emergency chocolate - there is plenty of that at our home too.

You have far more patience than I have! They are looking great and the fabric is really cool! :)

you are so industrious! this is a fantastic idea.

Miss Muggins said...

isn't persistence a virtue? Or is it patience? Whatever it is, they look great and you're sure to hit on the winner soon!

I love the tulip fabric and how can they not be pleased with something as useful as that!

Melanie Gray Augustin said...

Good luck and have fun with the testing. The prototypes look pretty good to me!

Corrie said...

sorry can't help you but I have that fabric and love it! I'm supposed to turn it into a summer dress but think it will do for next summer!

love the versions...can never have enough little bags...i say...

p.s check out the designs of the headbands and let me know which one is your fave...I have two other colours...but the burgundy is my fave at the moment...

It always amazes me how much work goes into producing something that we are happy with - if you saw my first chicken doorstops you would laugh and laugh and laugh!!

They look perfect as they are, just the right shape and colours!

Cass said...

I've been thinking of something similar myself for my new nano but can't think of how I want to do it

Hi,

I have a pattern for a glass/sunglass case you might like.
Have made up and sold the pouch many times. At one stage was hand printing silk to make the pouches and they were a great success.
