Hello Kitty Pouch

Here's the Hello Kitty pouch that I promised. The fabric came from a used dress that I got at the swap meet for $1 awhile back. All I got left of the dress is the little bit of material that you can see in the upper right corner of this picture. 

The pouch is quilted (!!!) and is about 5 x 7 inches.


This charm and bell that I used for the zipper pull were given to me by my coworker, Mich.

Geri found this buckle for me. It was on a beat-up purse at a rummage sale that we went to on Saturday. I totally needed it so that I could make the strap adjustable. If anybody knows how I can get more of these for cheap, can you let me know? It's 3/4-inch outside measurement. 

Didi gave me a bunch of these labels. I love, love, love it.

I asked Geri to model the pouch for me while we were at the swap meet yesterday. Sweetie put her iPhone 6s Plus in the outside pocket to help you gauge the size. 

Came out cute, yah? I'll be doing a giveaway drawing for this. You can enter the drawing by leaving a comment here or by emailing me at Wendell will draw a name on Sunday morning 10/11.

TOOO cute!!! I will keep my eyes out for those little buckles - are they also called metal slides? I saw some buckles on ebay but I think it is the kind that you need holes for adjusting the length. I did find the D rings on ebay 100 5/8" for $7.95 - super good deal, imo. Thanks for the info!

Also, I got some Hello Kitty phone charms that I was just about to donate to Goodwill - so I pulled them out of the bag for you. (This is NOT trying to get better odds of winning the Hello Kitty Pouch - though I still do want to be entered in the drawing, lol!)

K'den, mahalo for sharing!

Hi Jalna...thought I would check out your blog...I know it has been a long time. I'm bored so I'm playing on the computer...actually we have a friend here checking out the oven...won't light up for some reason.

Your little bag is adorable!! Saw that Aunty won it...she's been so generous in sending me some fabric. I've made a few of these bags, they are fun to use. Okay, I'm off to check out your posts. Trust all is well with you.
