I finished the Percheron Pouch over the Thanksgiving Weekend, which was a great relief. I couldn’t show it because it was a gift for my mom and she reads this blog.

I gave it to her on Christmas and she really liked it. She filled it up with all of the other gifts she received.

I really liked the look of this bag, which is why I decided to make it for my mom. I like making her bags I think are interesting. She always seems to appreciate them.

I really struggled with this bag. As I said before, I cut this bag out in June. Then it languished for all the same reasons that other projects languished: workroom upgrade and work.

I worked on it a little, but was frustrated with all of the sewing and ripping that I had to do. I don’t know what the issue was with this bag, but I struggled with the pattern and the video.

Finally, over Thanksgiving, I decided to work on it in earnest.  Yes, I still ripped and sewed and ripped some more, but I was able to finish it.

I thought it looked good enough to give away even if it isn’t perfect.
