I'm so chuffed with everone's comments, you guys are really adorable Kiss

My friends have been gushing over it, so I'm going to *have* to make more. I'll try and put up a brief tute as soon as I get around to sewing the next one. It was really really simple.

Some things I did:
  • The polkadot side has a medium weight interfacing on it, I think it'd be way too floppy without it.
  • Don't get lazy on the ironing whilst doing it, I usually am, but since this project was so small, any mismatched seams would have been really noticable.
  • The 'letterbox' of the papers pocket is suported by two plastic 'boning' pieces cut from a takeout tray, and sewn in place through holes in the boning melted with a hot pin
  • I added the poppers last, while the pouch was full, so I got the right placement. Since there's a lot of stress going to be put on the opening and closing of it, I'd use velcro or a simple ribbon tie if you don't have any proper hefty poppers like the ones I used.
  • The cowboy fabric is by Alexander Henry

Beautiful!! I would love to make a set for my puppy.. though I'm afraid she's got a special skill for seeing out the muddiest puddles possible, so it's be rather wasted on her! Embarrassed

My partner buys leather ones of these and loses them all the time, and they are so expensive to replace.
I love that you made one from fabric, your so clever!

Smiley Before I made this I'd been looking for a fabric one for myself, but all I could find were leather ones, no good at all for me, being vegan! This was the cheapest project ever, since I only used about an A4 sized piece of each fabric, and it was just stuff I had in my stash already (so were the poppers, elastic and button Smiley )

I am already plotting to make one for a dear friend of mine who is contantly digging around her purse at the worst possible times--it helps to make it sexy with a great fabric!  You are a dear to share your project!

Let me know if you want any more details on what I did Smiley Though I'm sure you'll work out a brilliant and unique way to do it too Grin

Craftsters make the world go round, it's true! Tongue

Best. Comment. Ever. *blush* Thank you so much!!

I was kind of thinking about making a standard pattern to make and sell.. but it'd take some playing around with, I think. I made so many mistakes with this one! I might just have to make them for all my smoker friends and call it product testing Tongue

I've been sewing a lot recently.. Not got around to posting most of it, but I absolutely had to share the tobacco wrap I made to keep all my rolling tobacco stuff in one place. I was getting pretty peed off with my previous method of storage, that being the chuck it into the abyss that is my handbag method. Very frustrating.

So.. own design, didn't so much plan it as had a vague idea of how big I wanted it, the whole thing changed as I went along.

Of course, I just HAD to use the sexy cowboy fabric I had knocking around from making a friend's birthday pressie last year (year before?). I could seriously find a use for a whole bolt of this fabric Cheesy

For the inside, I chose polkadots, because I'm totally obsessed.

It's about the size of a standard size packet of tobacco, but holds about 1/3-1/2 a pack. The little zippy pouch fits perfectly and keeps the baccy from getting everywhere (which it always did when I was keeping it in the packets it came in.

I'm rather chuffed with the paper holder pouch.. I used my buttonhole setting to create a mouth on it, so you can pull out a paper without having to fiddle with the little cardboard pockets.

Filters just go in the pouch, which is closed with a cute button on some decorative (and functional) elastic.

I'm sure it's his loss, no more geeky crafted pressies for him!!
