The sunglasses pouch set came with two pieces of yellow canvas cloth, needle, thread and two black strings. There was a set of instructions too. I was a little nervous about the sewing, since that’s one part of crafting I know I’m terrible at. Flashbacks of grade school projects came to me when I was threading the needle. Memories were not quite pleasant.

Good thing the sewing instructions were easy. I just had to sew the 2 pieces of canvas together several times, string it and hurrah! It was ready for painting – my favorite part!

I loved the bold yellow canvas cloth provided. I knew immediately that I wanted a simple black pattern. My son’s toys were once again my inspiration. Out came the tiger from his toy box. :) It’s also borderline bumblebee because of the black and yellow theme. After the paint dried up, I immediately slipped my sunglasses into the pouch. Hurrah!

Two days later: The yellow and black sunglasses pouch became my mobile phone pouch. Since the bold colors grab my eye easily, my phone no longer gets lost in my bag. All I do is reach for that flash of yellow and hurrah! My mobile phone is in my hand. <3 This was a quick and fun project! I loved painting the pouch. Another realization was that sewing was not as intimidating as I thought it would be. Yey! I'm looking forward to more crafts projects with Memory Crafters. <3 You can find more about Memory Crafters on their Facebook page (http://www.facebook.com/memorycrafters). :)

    galing! super like ko yan. Maganda yung color nyan lalo na pag nasa loob ng bag madali mo nga siya makikita pag nakahalo sa ibang mga gamit. NIce!
