My girlfriend had an emergency operation last week to take out her gallbladder. She had a really hard time before the doctors figured out what the problem was. But good news...she is now on her way to recovery and feeling much better. I made this sewing pouch from Twelve22 tutorial, I hope it will cheer her up. The pouch is just the right size for carrying thread and small snips. It was fun and easy to make and just about the easiest zipper I've ever done, Anna's method is wonderful. Give it a try.
