An early Christmas gift

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.

It's such a great present, Amanda. I know Christopher loved it and will use it in good health.

Yoko Saito's books are inspiring aren't they. But you are so right about being daunting too. All the tiny pieces she uses! I've made a couple things of hers... when I really want to do miniature work.
