Last week Christopher bought me Yoko Saito's book 'Houses, Houses, Houses'. It's a gorgeous, inspiring book and it seemed only fair that the first thing I made using it should be a gift for C. Since his heart attack he has to take loads of different medications, which means rather a lot to carry when we go away, so I made him this little pouch to put them in. I gave it to him now as we're going away before Christmas, so he can use it.
The patterns are a little daunting, primarily because the writing is so small I think, and there's something about the language that says 'translation', but this went together reasonably well until I got to the instructions for the zip. I just couldn't make it work, so ended up putting press fasteners in instead. Since all of C's tablets are in foils it doesn't matter too much that there isn't a zip; but I'd have liked to work it out all the same.
