instant gratification

8 August 2007

I go through phases of long slow projects and phases of short quick ones. Lately I’ve been working on the former (like this top) and reading up on tailoring and shirtmaking.

This morning I was browsing Erleperle’s site and saw her gorgeous little zakka pouch. I wanted, nay, needed one right away. When I got home from work I went straight to my fabric stash and whipped one up before dinner

It’ll do nicely to for taking knitting from place to place. Thanks for the inspiration, Erleperle.

    I see you retained your crafty inspiration all through the work day – good for you! I totally understand, bebe. Bag looks very lovable and useful.

    thanks guys 🙂 It was so frustrating though, to be stuck at work when I was itching to get started!

    delightful little pouch…perfect for just a few items whilst weekend rummaging. I believe I “need” one right now too 😉 Off to dig through my stash.
