One of these days I will have a finished quilt to share, but I just haven't made the time to finish any. Plus this time of year, I love a quick project that I can finish in one sewing session. So these Lisbon Pouches by SOTAK Patterns are that perfect quick project.
My oldest daughter has been asking for a wallet like pouch for awhile now as she has been earning money from loosing tooth and doing additional chores than her usual. So when trying to find a pattern that would work, I remembered the Lisbon Pouch and with the two zippers I thought it would be perfect.
And if I make one for my oldest daughter, that means I better make one for the youngest as well! So two quick zip pouches in an afternoon, made with scrap fabric, interfacing, and leftover zipper ends!
I love Svetlana's patterns, so clearly written and easy to follow. I have so many of her patterns, that I sew up constantly. Useful patterns that create function items that work well for daily life!
Now I just have to get my kiddos to remember to take their wallets when we head out shopping. Never to early to teach kiddos about them having to pay for some of the extra items that they want.
Fun project and you are so right about teaching the value of spending your own money on what you want. We did that with my son and as a 26 year old not making a lot, he never asks for anything.ReplyDelete
