Sewing with some Honey Bun Strips

Well, the snow has all returned.  Mind you, two days ago it was sunny and in the 40's.  Not now.  All that snow that melted decided to reappear.  The local schools have closed.  We were already due to have the day off, so it didn't affect me any. 

I needed some cheer, luckily Mary Engelbreit was near.  You like the rhyme?  I worked on it just for my readers.  Have you ever used this free pattern found on Moda's website?  It is called Sweet Treat Bags and is made using honey buns, although...you could really just use yardage if you wanted to.  The directions are easy to follow.  It would be a good one for someone who wanted to make a pouch but didn't want to deal with zippers.  These don't look very big, but they are a good size.  The picture is deceiving.





You can see I opted out of the velcro enclosure and inserted a snap instead.  I also top stitched around the top as well. 

I love this kid.  I just thought I'd throw that in for the world to hear.  Love him.  He was fresh out the pool.  I told him what a good job he did and he replied, "Are you kidding?  Did you SEE me have to swim all the way down the big pool and back by myself?  I almost drowned.  I thought I was going to die."  I assured him I had too much invested him to let that happen.
