Finally, some craft




Well, once I finally finished these for my long suffering customer, I could finally move on to a little project I have had in mind.

I have seen all over the internets people making things (bags, purses, etc) out of those juice pouch things. I thought as much as I like the idea of the juice pouch, it would defeat the whole purpose of reusing if I went out and bought some, just to make a coin purse.

Miss 12 has one of these in her lunch everyday, and now she will bring the empties home to me. It needs some work I know, but I love it.


Recycled popper, 20c zip from the op shop, just priceless.

What a cool idea. I haven't seen that anywhere before. Did your machine struggle to sew through all the cardboard and foil layers?
PS - Lovely cushions!

That was me in the comment above - no idea why it didn't pick up my ID.

Hurrah Selina, this rocks! You're fabulous. Hey I wonder whether it would work to bind the edge? I'm sure you'll have fun testing out all the possibilities.

I love the pillows and the wallet is very cute

I've seen those little pouches everywhere too and didn't trust that they worked... either to sew or as a finished purse. Cool to see they do.

And I am sure your long suffering customer will be suffering no more once they receive your beautiful cushions.
