Logcabin Pouch

I found these at Stanford Shopping Center today. Can you guess what these are for?
These squirrels are watering cans! As you can see there are holes for water to come out on the walnut they are holding preciously. I live in a apartment with no gardens, so there was no reason for me to get this, but I had to tell myself one day I'll have a beautiful garden with this cutie saying hi to us every day.. One day...


I added a list of my favorite blogs on the right. Now I can easily jump to those blogs daily! I will later add more blogs. There are so many inspiring crafters' blogs out there, so it's hard to keep track of them all.


Logcabin Pouch

I made this log cabin pouch for a custom-order! I'm not finished yet. I still have to do some binding inside the pouch to complete. I'm pretty happy with the choice of fabrics. I like the project that involves teeny tiny scrap of fabrics, because that's when I can finally make use of my collection of fabric scraps. When I create things with those scraps, I feel I accomplish something for collecting tiny scraps over time.

This was my second time to make this pouch.(First one is here.) There are a lot of difficult sewing projects, but this is one of the toughest pouch pattern that I've ever come across. Making the log cabin is fine, but attaching the other part to it is really challenging, but the outcome is a reward that makes me smile;)

Sewing is so much fun!

Thanks for stopping by and reading!


  1. Nice pouch Ayumi. The colors are awesome.

    One thing about the squirrels though: If you poor water out, it looks like its coming out of the acorn they are holding. Indeed, this is an excellent analogy for man's eternal struggle nature, and natures eternal struggle against acorns.

  2. Those pouches are fantastic. How big are they? The designs and colors are freaking awesome. I've never seen anything like that before. Really cool!

    I'm adding this blog to my "read daily" list. You'd better update frequently!

    Thanks for your comment, Joe.
    Yes, it's weird to think about water coming out of the acorn(walnut) but it's cute anyway;)


    Thanks for visiting my new blog and listing this for your daily read. That's a big encouragement for me to update this blog often. Thanks!
    The size of this pouch is like a typical pen case. It's hard to make this, but I love how it comes out by the end. Thanks again for your kind comment, Matt!
