Pleated Pouch Tutorial- Skip to My Lou

When my kids were young I used to make some of their clothes, Halloween, costumes, etc. I kinda got sick of sewing and nothing I made ever really turned out like I expected, so I quit sewing for years.

Now I have found a renewed obsession with sewing purses, totes, etc.! I love how easy they are and they actually turn out the way I want. It makes me happy, so I have bought lots of pretty fabric and I am sewing every day now!

I told you I get obsessed about something, I buy all the stuff for it, and I can't think of anything else! I know......I am OCD.

At least I am accomplishing something:))

So here is my version of a pattern I found on this site:

She has the best tutorials and they are really easy! Trust me if I can do it, you can. Say to yourself: "I can do hard things." Only this isn't hard!

Above are some pictures of my cute Pleated Pouch. I love the way it turned out. I used some leftover jeans of my 8 year old daughter. She was so excited! I also added a cute matching yo yo. I think it turned out great!

What do you think?

Wordless Wednesday? Nah!

I thought about just posting these pictures and that was it, but I think they need a little explaining!
For Memorial Day we went to a beautiful park here in Oregon called Silver Falls State Park. They have the most beautiful Falls there and great hiking trails.
We hiked, got rained on, hiked some more, got poured on, then had a nice wet BBQ. It was fun though. Here are some cool pictures I took from our adventure.
Don't ya just looooove the Green? One of my favorite pictures is the moss covering that tree.....gorgeous!
