Playing with pouches stage 3

To-day I sent off a parcel to my Pretty Little Pouch Swap partner & am nervously awaiting her reaction!
She said she would love a coin purse with a metal frame & her likes were Japanese fabrics & designers, so I came up with this wee pouch:
I used Kyoko's tutorial (http://cottonandcloud.com/blog/free-patterns/mini_purse_pattern.pdf) Although I have made metal frame purses before, I found this one quite tricky because it's so small & when I looked at all the other wonderful pouch swap creations on flickr (http://www.flickr.com/groups/1633419@N20/), I thought my tincy wincy purse looked a bit insignificant... so I made a partner for it:
For the sunglasses case I lined it with some soft fleece, so my partners sunglasses won't get scratched

These are now on their long journey across the Atlantic to the other side of America, hopefully to a happy new owner, while I get back to finishing my next swap project - the doll quilt swap. If you get a chance, check out some of the loveliness on the flickr group: http://www.flickr.com/groups/dollquiltswap/
