The Snappy Pouch
The Snappy Pouch came about when I was randomly watching Crafty Gemini tutorials. She had a Chapstick pouch that she had created, and I took it to another level – much like Bic pens and Pentel pens are pretty much the same, just different.
I wanted something small, easy to use, discreet, and cute at the same time. I found some Kam Snaps and charm squares from Tuesday Morning. Throw in some fusible interfacing for a little increased stability, and a lobster clasp, et viola! Snappy Pouch! It doesn’t take long to make them, the charm squares are the perfect size for these. Usually, though, no one Snappy Pouch is the same as the other due to the odd pattern cuts from the fabric. However, it’s worth it to note how unique each one is on its own.
Snappy Pouches can attach to anything with a loop: zippers, belt loops, bra straps, tote bags, diaper bags, you name it. They’re super convenient for quick trips out, or if you don’t want a bulky purse to wrestle with. This is perfect for grocery shopping, trust me on this one. Use the lobster clip to attach it to the shopping cart so nothing is taken while you’re browsing. They make fantastic gifts for children in school, your college student going back to the university, travelling abroad, the possibilities are endless.
I really love mine, I attach it to pretty much anything. I get compliments constantly. My plans for these will expand to three different kinds: Basic – just your run of the mill cotton Snappy Pouch that you can beat up and wash a ton of times and not worry about it; Nightlife – A collection of Snappy Pouches made from upcycled clubbing clothes (sequined dresses, hologram shirts, chenille scarves, etc.) that provide extra bling that won’t get in your way of dancing and getting toasty; Custom – Snappy Pouches made from a special cotton where I can print your logo, family picture, anything you’d like to put on fabric. Eventually, I’ll get an embroidery machine so I can really get to personalization, but until then, I’ll stick with my custom fabric.
I’ll be creating a pattern for download soon in case you wanted to try making your own, I may post it for sale for $5 with a selling license, but I haven’t made up my mind yet. My other pattern plans are a small video tutorial to accompany it, but it’s so simple, I may not even need to do that.
