I foresee these pouches being used for treasures like rocks, Matchbox cars, and tiny horses. It gives me the idea to try other shapes in pouches as well. Hmmm...

Valentines for my Valentines
I am probably dooming myself for years down the road by giving my kids something handmade for Valentine's Day. I'm sure they will remember next year that I made them something this year and expect it again. Their little memories always amaze me. But it's hard to resist my 3-year-old son's frequent exclamations of, "Mom, you are the best sewer EVER!" So here I am, with two very cute little heart-shaped zip pouches to give to my very cute kids tomorrow. I used the tutorial over at The Purl Bee. This was my first foray into sewing a zipper on this tight of a curve, and it was not easy. But I did it! The key was to go very sloooowly. I think my favorite is the circuit board side of the robot pouch. There's some hidden meaning in there between the heart and the circuits, I think.
