Put it in its place

A couple of weeks ago (a week ago? goodness…) I had dinner with my lovely lady friends. These are the ladies that I spend the most time with, no the most about me and see me 1-2 times a week, if we’re planning well. And I’m super lucky. I sometimes think of them as my “mom friends” but that’s not really an accurate description. They all have kids who are the same age as Courtney and Patrick and I’ve known them since Courtney was a little bitty baby. But over the years they’ve become some of my closest friends.

For the past 3(?) years we’ve planned one of our mom nights out for the holidays and sometimes we exchange gifts and sometimes we don’t. There’s no pressure to but if the mood strikes, go for it. This year I made everyone little pouches to keep their things in. They aren’t really that little, maybe 10″ wide by 7″ tall. But they have a wide open mouth and you can keep all your little things in there. There’s a zipper to keep everything inside and one of them even had a pocket.

As a result of making all these cute pouches, a friend of mine asked me to make her 6 to give as gifts. So for the past couple of days I’ve felt like a pouch-making assembly line. I’ve made 4 for her so far but I was also planning on making some as gifts so I need to get on that and quickly. Especially as I need to mail some of mine. What’s the rush?

But aren’t they cute???
