Aloha Pouch

 This is another pouch I made and I have not figured out what to put in it yet, but I will.  The pouch is shaped like an hourglass and the skirt is made of leaf shapes that are stitched on at the waistline.   They all are made in the same manor as the dragonfly pouch.
It has a beaded handle to hang it with.  There are also beads sewn to the neckline right above the little circles of fabric that are folded in half, then folded into thirds.  The raw edge of the folded circles are gathered into little rosebuds and stitched on.
The picture below shows the backside. 
The following picture shows a close-up of the neckline with the beading and rosebuds.
We had our multifamily garage sale. It went well. We sold a lot of stuff, and then we took most of the remaining things and donated them to Goodwill. Friday we had horrible heat, and Saturday we got stormed on. Good thing Erin's garage had room for everything.  I'm really tired; I think the heat just zaps me.  I'm a wimp.  Our power went out during the storm on Saturday and was off for better than 4 hours.  I was afraid we would have to drag out the generator.  I love air-conditioning.
There's a really nice lonestar quilt on amylouwho that I just love--go check it out.
