shhhh...it's a surpise!

I decided to whip up some wee little pouches. I just love to make itty bitty things...not sure why..just do! One of my other favorite things to do is goody bags...goodness ...give me half a reason -I'm putting together goody bags...this week...you guessed it ....daughter going to college.

For my older daughters, i would put together a little something, along with a note and leave hidden packages for her and her roommates...so I'm working on Cassidy's roommates presents. I decided to whip up a pattern for these little pouches for college id's, a few dollars and maybe a chap stick..added the swivel hook so they could add it to their book bag or add their keys and be ready to go. I added a Starbucks card to the pouch and I'm off the wrap them. I also added Jeremiah 29:11 on a little gift tag.

"For I know the plans I have for you", say the Lord,"plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you a hope and a future."

**These pouches were made off a 5 inch square. I did cut them down slightly (no 2 ever a like), I also square off the bottoms. Otherwise made just like any other lined, zippered pouch! (more unbleached cotton used---MY FAVORITE...i think it has a linen look for a WAY cheaper price! These little purses are a fabulous way to use up the scrap bucket.

Happy Monday!
