Flat Zippered Pouch
This past weekend was Mother’s Day. I wanted to make my mom something special since she’s my mom. Plus, she took my boys overnight one night over the weekend while my husband and I went to a homeschool conference. Since our trip to Toronto last year, we haven’t been anywhere with just the two of us.
My mom is not big on gardening (and plants are a great go-to Mother's Day gift idea), I figured I’d sew her something. So I whipped up this cute little zippered pouch. I've got a tutorial from the past on how to make zippered pouches.
I still love the yellow and gray color combination. And I liked the idea of mixing chevron and polka dots.
It also happens to match with the gray and white chevron bags I’ve been making.
I actually sewed this while one of my children was awake (I usually can’t focus on a project unless both my boys are napping). My nearly-four year old has been having trouble going to sleep at bedtime for awhile now.
And so *sadly* we’ve been experimenting with giving up naps this week. I gave in one day and let him take a nap, but he was awake til 9:30 that night.
I’m sad that the nap-at-the-same-time-phase is ending for my two boys, but it’s apparently time. I feel like I’m torturing him by keeping him awake all day. He still asks to take a nap. So this is a little bit hard. But nothing other parents have not encountered.
