Yay!  It looks fantastic with six petals, Sarah!  I love it!  The extra leaf looks great too!

Do you have plans for any more sakura - or are you moving onto some other pouches for the time being?

Here's another thing from that Omiyage book.  Yay libraries!  It's a little fold up sewing box.  I was kind of disappointed with the pattern, though.  It didn't fit together very well the first time I tried it and I had to modify it.

Oh!  Excellent!  I was wondering how that particular project would go.  But, like Sarah, I'm obsessed with flower and animal pouches right now!

If you don't mind me asking - what was it that you felt you had to modify?  So I can keep that in mind, when I finally get around to making one myself :]

I'm glad you like my sewing box!  It's made of cardboard panels covered in fabric and glued together.  I had to make the panels on the inside a little smaller than the pattern says so that the box would actually fold up.  Luckily I realized this before the glue set and I was able to pull the panels off, slice off a piece, and glue them back on.  The other problem was the lid.  The lid from the pattern just refused to fit on the box.  I ended up making an entirely new one about a quarter of an inch bigger.  Maybe my cardboard (from a cereal box) was thicker than the author's and that's why it didn't fit together well.

It is also quite possible it was the thickness of the fabric... the reason why I remember this is because I watch too many shows on covering ottomans with batting and then fabric and they always have to add a certain amount more to what ever is going to close on top so it will actually fit...

so no luck on finishing the bird yet but here's the bellflower. much harder in my opinion because its all chance whether it matches up or not. the sakura is more fun Tongue (ie: less stressful)
