I had a ziplock plastic bag of Cheerios cereal in my work bag for snacking on my breaks. Last night I came home from work and put my work bag down on the floor next to my bed. Today I discovered the bag of Cheerios lying in the hallway outside my room. The bag was chewed and torn and there were Cheerios all over the hall. Silly cats, I already knew to keep sourdough bread double bagged or in a cupboard, but cereal, too?
The determining factor in the size of my new purse was the amount of yellow thread on hand. The person who dyed the thread I am using is out of yellow so I used up what I had and made the embroidery as big as I could. I thought it looked really small but it is the same size as the first pouch I made. This time I decided to make the eyelets for the drawstring before stitching up the sides. It is much easier that way. Hopefully this holiday weekend I will find the time to finish the whole thing.
