Apple Pocket -- Ringo-No-Poketto

I made this apple "pocket" from a Japanese (English language) craft book: Kokoro no Te by Kumiko Sudo. It's two halves, felt lined and sewn together, with an opening at the top so you can tuck a little treasure inside. Put a long cord on it and it would make a cute purse just big enough to hold a driver's license and a key. It's completely handsewn and took me about a day, off an on, to finish.

I'm anxiously waiting to see if I'll be making the trek to the nearest Japanese book store today with a friend. It will be my first adventures into the big world of Japanese language craft books. I'm continually amazed at the images that the crafty bloggers have been posting from them, and can't wait to get my hands on some. I've made my fair share of kanzashi, have dabbled in amigurumi, and have just started sewing again. So, I'm excited to see what I come home with. What's budget should I allow myself? Luckily my three-year-old will keep me in check, since he'll only give me some minutes before running round and round the aisles.

I like those little pompoms hanging off of it.

This is so pretty, you did a great job! I love it. I actually have that book, but I have been trying to work up the courage to make one of the projects :o) Thanks for the inspiration!

I am working on the little felt bowl with the pincushion inside. Your pocket turned out great! I just love this book.
