Correct me if I’m wrong, but i’m pretty sure I’ve mentioned the fabulous baby shower I was given a few weeks ago!?!
Well, the night before the big event, as I was roaming around my home aimlessly, I realized that I wasn’t happy with the hostess gift I had selected for the shower hostesses. Yeah sure, everyone enjoys some nice fruity soaps…but seriously??? Had my life become so lame that that was the best that I could do?? NO WAY!! My pride would not let me sleep on that.
So, at about 11pm, I began work on these little clutches / pouches … and the next day, as I was handing them out – I was SO glad I did!
I made my pouches exactly like Amy Karol instructs…except I chose to use rubber band / hair elastics instead of regular elastic for the button loops. She uses cotton batting in between the outer and lining layers, and the effect is a nicely sewn and slightly fluffy pouch – I love it. You’ll have to ask the hostesses if they enjoyed receiving them … but I can guarantee you’ll LOVE giving them! Come on – SEW SOMETHING!!!
