Zipper Pouch Dilemma

 



I wanted to make a zipper pouch with this tutorial by Jeni B for Ayden's teacher assistant.  The problem was I finished it and now I don't want to part with it:(

I used up some scraps from the heart mini and had to only make a few more HSTs.  Then I bordered it in Kona Purple and backed it in a Joel Dewberry print.  I am not a huge fan of purple,but it has grown on me significantly.  So it seems;)

Hmmmm.....what to do, what to do??!  Has this happened to you ever?  You loved the end result so much, you didn't want to gift it?  Sounds terrible I know.

Hugs!

Good for you! What a nice gift. That used to happen to me all the time, but then I realized I could make another one. And the receiver will likely love it more because you made it.

It has happened, and I just make another for the gift and keep the one I love!

It is gorgeous! Glad to hear purple is growing on you:)

The only thing I never gave away was my Little Apples quilt. I ended up keeping it and making another one for the little girl it was intended for.

That has happened to me a time or two. When it does,I just make another one!

Make another one and pick the one you like to keep for yourself! It is lovely, I can see why you don't want to part with it!

Yes, that has definitely happened to me! I have been known to make a second one for myself!
