I needed something to organize my "little cabinet" which is where all our mail goes in the house. The top of the cabinet is a catch-all for everything. In fact right now I even have corn seedlings on top of it.
See, I was serious. :) This is actually a good day with the cabinet. It is usually much worse, which is why I made these.
This is where our mail is going from now on. I love how these turned out. I got the pattern from the book "One Yard Wonders". I elected to use muslin that I tea dyed first and then picked a couple of great clip art pieces from The Graphics Fairy.
I only used two graphics because I get a little ahead of myself sometimes. I originally printed out three beautiful pages to put on my pouches but I wasn't thinking and didn't mirror the image before I hit print. Duh! So I had to scrap those three and I only had two pages left. In the meantime my oldest needed to print an essay for one of her classes so when I went to print again I got her bibliography on one of the pages. :( Okay so I finally got what I wanted except that I wrote Paris by hand with a sharpie on the pouch above. I'm very proud of that one, I have poor handwriting and I practiced a lot before I got the courage to write it permanently on the fabric.
I thought I would put a few more embellishments on it but once I started positioning a few things on them, they really just did not need anything else.
