Three quick announcements today:
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!)
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!
