Now that I have mastered the basic zip pouch I thought I’d try to expand my horizons. I wanted a pouch that I could take with me instead of my big purse with all of its “stuff”. Pretty much a pouch that could double as my wallet but could hold my phone and keys as well.
I figured that I needed a few slots for credit cards, license, AAA and medical ID cards and a place for cash. I also wanted a zippered pocket for changes and a little space in-between for the phone. I didn’t want it big enough for “the stuff”. I actually wanted this pouch in my purse so I could just grab it and run.
I didn’t have a pattern and was really too into NCIS an NCISLA to search the internet for a pattern or tut so I improvised. Here she is.
I’m pretty pleased with this first attempt. Next time I would place the slots higher on the side and make the bill fold section much deeper and with maybe a button or Velcro at its top. The zippered change section is just what I wanted. I would probably look for a tut on that type of pocket before I attempt another. I got it in but I have to believe there is a better way than how I did it.
We leave for a short vacation on Friday so I can give it a real trial run and see if I need to tweak anything else before attempting another. Someone I work with has already put in a request for one once I finalize my idea.
