I am excited to announce that there are brand new marker pouches in the shop for you to buy!
I'd initially planned to make a few for the girls' schoolteachers as end-of-the-year gifts, in lieu of our usual lunch buckets. And, as we did with those batches of lunch buckets, I also planned to make a few more marker pouches for the shop, in response to the many requests from you guys who wanted them.
But I might have gone a little mass-production-crazy.
In my defence, it was hard to shortlist the fabrics in my stash, so I just gave up and made a whole bunch of 'em.
Behold all those fun zipper pulls!
And the leather zipper tabs!
I finally went out to buy some leather for this batch. Leather sews so nicely.
And I'm pleased to report that I remembered to sew on my tags (I usually forget).
If you're unfamiliar with these marker pouches, here's a quick demo - you unzip them,
fold back the upper portion
to display the contents,
which sit in a reinforced "cup" that allows easy access to them.
These pouches hold a lot of markers - almost 50 of these skinny ones, about 22 of the regular Crayola ones, and about 15 of the fat whiteboard/ Mr Sketch types.
There are 15 in the shop for you to pick from, in a variety of fabrics,
including this one you can color in yourself.
As always, if you buy multiples, I'll combine the shipping and issue you a paypal refund of any significant difference.
Go here to pick out your favorites!
P.S. I apologize to anyone who might've been waiting for a batch of lunch buckets to buy - I'm not planning to make any this year. If you sew, you can buy the sewing pattern (read about it here and buy it here) to make your own.
