New Pouches!

Months ago I purchased a stash of purse clasps and magnetic purse snaps on ebay from Hong Kong. The purse snaps where put to quick use it all sorts of cute bags. But the purse frames sat on my dresser sadly staring at me, begging me to make something. It took a while but I was finally able to come to a pattern and figure out how to attach them. See?

I also did some doodles for some new zippered wristlet pouches!

One is a Maneki Neko that will have a cute little bell sewn on his collar. Mankei Nekos are also called lucky cats or beckoning cats in Japan. They are a symbol of good luck and are usally in most businesses and houses, to bring in cumtomers and wealth. This guy is holding a carp (or koi) which symbolizes strength.

The other is a Daruma. When you buy a daruma his eyes are big white spots then you color in one of his eyes and make a wish. When your wish comes true you color in his other eye to show your gratitute! The druma on this wristlet wont have his eyes colored in so you can make a wish!

And this one is going to be some cute bunnies frolicking under a tree. Notice I said cute bunnies, not wonky bunnies like I have drawn here. He has a clown nose.
