Today’s tutorial comes from Cami of the Creative Team:
I am always in need of a little extra storage. This handy little pouch has endless possibilities. With the snap closure on the handle, it can be attached to nearly any handle. Here are a few of its many uses: strap it to a car seat to store small baby items, strap it to stroller handle to store keys on a walk. How about attaching it to your purse strap to store small items that are lost easily in the endless abyss? They are so fast and easy to make, they would make a great little gift for anyone.
-Fat quarter or scrap of fabric for main body (We used Joel Dewberry’s Heirloom fabric for both)
-Fat quarter for bias tape (click here for tutorial on how to make bias tape)
