I'm new to this board and new to making bags and wallets.  Here are a few items that I have made which were inspired and based upon some patterns in Cute Stuff by Aranzi Aronzo.

My teddy bear pouch.  This is my first time using a sewing machine in 20 years and I've never inserted a zipper before, but I think it turned out pretty cute and my daughter isn't too critical.

My card holders, perfect for carrying gift cards and coupons.  These go fast, so I'll be making several for gifts.

A cozy for my old school nano.

Thanks for looking.  Comments and suggestions for improvement appreciated.

those are soo adorable, are those mostly hand sewn, or mixture of hand and machine?

The only actual machine sewing I did was to hold the bear pouch together, everything else is hand sewn.  I'm still kind of intimidated by the sewing machine and need more practice to get comfortable with it.  I kind of like the rustic/rough look of hand stitching, it goes with the whimsical motifs.

Did you get the patterns from the "Cute" book?  I have the book but have yet to try any of the items in there...but I want to get down with the bunny scarf!
If not...I recommend the book, I think you'd like it!  And you did a great job with these!  I love the kitty pouch!

Personal swaps???!?!?  Why yes...I LOVE personal swaps!!!!
