Late For My Own Linky!

Well, late with the posting of what I made for CTTY... but I promise the items were actually finished in time!

The fun strawberry print is a furnishing canvas that was purchased for another purpose a few years ago, but evidently never used... I was going to get rid of it, then had an idea to cut it all up & make it into some different sizes of zipper pouch... no pellon or interfacing needed for this fabric...
 
Too Cute!
There will end up being quite a few pouches made with this fabric & I think I'll be keeping a couple for myself, I've quite fallen in love with the results!
So these two are going into my Giftie Box of things for December giving & will be joined by some others too in the coming months.
*~~~~~~~~~~*~~~~~~~~~~*~~~~~~~~~~*~~~~~~~~~~*

Sickness remains as an unwelcome visitor in our home... as a family we don't really get much in the way of winter illnesses, but seriously this past month has been ridiculous... so my soup pot is constantly bubbling away with some sort of nourishing brew & there's a number of boxes & bottles of 'cold & flu' remedies. Don't you just hate it when sickness just lingers?! I do...

Right-o, going to go do some sewing while the 'patient' sleeps!
I hope you all have a wonderful week ahead xo

The pouches look great..well done for getting anything done with sickies in the house, they always need lots of attention.

You are so clever making those lovely pouches. I hope the sickness in your home disappears soon. I take heaps of vit C each day and when I feel something coming on I boost the dose and also start taking olive leaf extract. Usually does the trick. Can't afford to get regular illnesses when I have enough probs with FMS and hubby's disabiliy. LOL. Angel hugs to you.

Love your pouches, they are superset! Hope you all get better soon- I have a summer cold, and have been voiceless for a couple of weeks now- very annoying!

Your pouches look great! We are having the same problem here with sickness - apparently many people are - I just seem to start getting better and bang I relapse. I think we need a break from the cold and wet here.
