#148 Turtle Pouch

I spent most of the day on this silly thing.  I had problem after problem.  Mostly user-error.  I saw this tutorial today and wanted to make one.

The one in the tutorial was a little too busy for me, so I toned it down and added turtles to it.
Here is the main compartment.

My favourite part?  The secret pocket!  You didn't notice that in the first two photos did you?
I see a few threads that I missed.

I hope my turtle for tomorrow doesn't take this long.

  1. Wow that looks good! I love the mirror turtlies!

  2. Wow!!! It looks great!!! I think it was worth the frustration- and I really didn't notice the secret pocket at first :)

  3. your suffering had purpose... it turned out great!

  4. I love secret stuff! secret pockets... secret rooms... secret drinking... oops

  5. I like secret stuff too Tricia. Well, maybe not the drinking part, that is better with a friend.

    Thanks everyone. I'm pleased with it, mistakes and all. There are two big ones, but you would only know if you had read the tutorial AND inspected this little pouch thoroughly.

    I want to make more, but have no use for more! LOL

  6. This is so adorable! I love your fabric choices and the secret pocket.

  7. Thank you for posting this! I'm so excited to see what people make from my tutorials. You did such a great job, and I wanted to let you know that it wasn't any fault of yours if you were confused about any of the instructions. I had a really hard time writing out the instructions, and even I was confused looking back over it. Thanks again, and I look forward to reading more of your posts. :)

  8. I'm flattered that you like what I did with your tutorial Bonnie!

    I used it to go garage sale-ing on Saturday. Guess what? I forgot to sew up the hole in the lining! Hahahaha! I didn't end up buying anything but it is a good thing, I guess because my change was VERY difficult to get out!
