New Marker Pouches In Shop!

Happy weekend, everyone!

Three quick announcements today:

1 The marker pouches are in the shop now. Get them while you can! Update: Er, it seems they've all been bought up already. Sorry there weren't more to go around, guys. If you still want these pouches, I'll try to make more throughout the year, like when it isn't crazy end-of-school season. Let me know in the comments if you'd like them, to give me an idea of how many we're looking at. 



2 Quite a few of you have tried to make these marker pouches using my tutorial here, and have left comments or written to either ask for dimensions or to lament that the dimensions you chose didn't work out as well as you'd hoped. I'm sorry I didn't provide the templates earlier - I honestly wasn't being selfish or anything; I was just too lazy to trace and annotate and scan them, and I thought the tutorial photos would be enough for you guys to run with. Anyway, in response to all those requests, I will be uploading all my templates soon, so that you can use them along with the tutorial. No, it will not be a pattern - it will just be that free tutorial plus my templates and you can go and make as many as you like for personal, non-commercial use. Look for the templates in the upcoming zippered bag tutorial series - the marker pouch (and this very fun variation of it, below) will be one of the receptacles under deconstruction.

(Argh! Let me confess that keeping that tutorial series under wraps is making me slightly ill. I'm so impatient to share it! If you think that marker pouch is cool, wait till you see the other things we'll be making with zippers!)


3 There will be Lunch Buckets in the shop soon!
I cut them out today instead of procrastinating and reading books or something. As soon as I procure some buttons, I will start sewing. Excited!!! Check back here for an announcement when they're ready to buy!

Have a wonderful, restful Memorial Day weekend, US friends!

  6. Oh, the price of being offline... I would definitely be interested, if you do make more. Or maybe I will get very brave and face zippers again once you have templates out. Your variation looks brilliant!

  7. Your pouches look amazing, and you are SO generous for sharing whatever information you have already. I know everyone has to be grateful for that. Thanks so much and we look forward to those templates. Some of us are very challenged without explicit directions. That's why we love you girls that have all the talent and are generous to share with us! Thanks so very much!!!

  11. Incase people can't wait, I have a measurement template on my blog post from when I made loads of these for party gifts. LiEr was kind enough to share measurements with me, and I worked it out from there. You can find it at Random Crafting Adventures.
