I needed a new pouch for my costume, and there was a clearance at JoAnn's.  I got a bunch of fabric, including a big piece of black w/design for $1 and heavy pale gold for another dollar.



Then I came across a plant hanger for $1.50.  The sun design is very close to the logo of my home faire, Bristol.



I used wire cutters (and a little help from my dad and his steel-cutting tools) to get the hooks off the the plant hanger.  I bought some gold gimp (trim) and sewed the pouch using a simple design from a costuming page (I think it was called Red Dawn).  When I was done, I used E6000 to affix the sun to the front.  Voila - new belt pouch, for barely more than $4!
