  1. I love that fabric! This looks just the right size for the first aid kit in my car, currently stored in a not very cute ziplock.

  2. PS I followed through wordpress

  3. Selected at random…eh?

    I would pile all the magic into said pouch. I would carry it around with me all the time as I carry you.

    You are becoming quite good at this. I will have to one up you and build this house. Xo. Happy almost birth. -from the airport

  4. Into that beautiful pouch I would put all the screws, nuts, and bolts letft over after an IKEA project. IKEA I-SHMEAH.
    You are my favorite of all.
    I follow you.

  5. I would place a small notebook and pencil inside. I would carry it with me and have it available to jot down the many things that pop into my head during a day.
    I follow your blog. You’re great!

  6. I would place all of my essentials in this. Pen, journal, handmade lip balm, a key or two, a phone, a charm, and essential oil.
    By the way, you’re such a crafty maker. You’re doing so great 🙂
    And girl, you know I follow you. Maybe too much.

  7. really cute material – great place to keep my allowance. 😆 We budget, and we’ve budgeted in an allowance each. I’ve been keeping mine in a little plastic zipper coin purse. This is much prettier!
