I wanted to do a tutorial for a simple little pouch. Something no-fuss that could be made in a few short hours. I don't know about you, but I have a TON of friends, family, and coworkers that I have to make birthday and Christmas presents for, so as much as I love show-stopping gifts and elaborate bags & pouches, sometimes it's nice to have a small, quick gift in your repertoire :)
Shopping for craft books at the public library is one of my fave past times, and bringing them home for free somehow gives me satisfaction despite having to return them in 3 weeks. The need for a sweet little tote to carry my temporary books from the library inspired this little bird book bag.
