Last week Chelsea of Get Your Crap Together asked for some help testing out a new *FREE* pattern she was going to add to her shop. I jumped on it, partly because I clearly don't have enough going on (lol) and partly because I really like Chelsea's pattern and it's fun to test something different than clothes sometimes....AND lastly because Connor saw the picture and begged, lol.
A little background. Connor has two favorite songs... The Gungam Style/2 Legit mashup and The Fox Song... We listen to the Fox Song... a lot. For a while I was gauging distances around town in "Fox Songs." It takes 9 1/2 fox songs to get to the pool. It takes 2 1/2 Fox Songs to get to McDonalds.
So when he saw this he HAD to have one... so Connor's came first... and then Miss Princess demanded one of her own, but "girly."
The pouches close with a zipper:
Which is explained nicely how to attach, and you flip it right-side out through the zipper hole, so no topstitching any seams after.
Connor loves him...
Inara on the other hand... is, well she's a particular child... And despite picking all her fabrics and the ribbon, she decided it wasn't her style and she was going to send it to Aunt Diana. Cause my Sister-in-Law totally needs a fox coin pouch? So I decided to play with the pattern a little... and see what I could make that she would like...
The best part? You can totally make the whole thing with scraps you've got tucked into your scrap mess.!! Awesome way to make the Fox lover in your life happy and start paring down the scraps!
The pattern is available here in her Craftsy shop and definitely check out her patterns while you're there!
