I love the idea of creating – I love creating! I like the idea of making something out of nothing. I love the idea of taking certain materials and forming them into new shapes and into new objects for new uses - or, no practical use at all - just something pretty to look at.

I finished off most of the pouches with organza ribbon in the zipper pull to add a little flair. You can check out my pouches in various stages of finished here: Pouch Crazy!
