This was a pouch given to me by a friend who picked it out of a neighbour's garbage. It was ripped below the velcro closure, so, as I was sewing it up, I decided to re-vamp the bag. I removed the ugly brand logo sewn on the front of the bag. To perk it up more, I added an old tie lying around in a drawer. There was a belt loop at the back, which I wanted to keep, that I also hid with the tie. I didn't think of taking before pictures, but this is the end result... tell me what you think! I'm actually quite proud of it  Embarrassed

Here it is:

Thanks for taking the time to look!

I'm sure it looks much better than when it was new.  I admire the use of ties in bag making and yours takes this bag to a whole new level.  It's a great pattern and matches the fabric really well.  The bow also adds charm.
