Welcome today’s newest installment of making things that work for you. Today, the Pooch Pouch. What is a pooch pouch? Well, it is that bag that you need when you take the dog for a walk. Since your hands might be full, it hangs from your wrist. Because you want to get back in the house, it holds keys. Just in case your friends call while you are out, it will easily hold your iPhone. It also will have plenty of room left for a dog treat or two, some cash and ATM card, and the doggy bags. Exactly what you need when you are walking the pooch and nothing else.
Of course, pooch pouches are also good for other things. They are perfect for a night out, as they are just enough space for the identification, money, cell phone, lip gloss, a mint or two, and that perfect phone number. :) I’d also use a bag this size for a grocery trip or to run to the bank. It’s not the ideal bag for a day full of errands or a shopping extravaganza. But it is perfect for those times when you need a bag to hold little things but you don’t want to have to remember your bag. And most importantly, it’s hands free. Perfect for those tasks that take two hands.
So this is a bag that I would use a dark lining in, as you can see from the pictures. Why is it okay on this bag? Because it has no pockets and is a small space easily viewed by unzipping it. Stuff won’t hide because it doesn’t have space to hide in. And I would never think of changing the zipper. A bag this small needs a secure closure, so without a flap, a zipper it is! Don’t be afraid of the zipper. They are really easy these days!
Love this bag? Well, it’s going up for sale in my Etsy store. I’ve also got a cute purple and turquoise one as well as a pirate one made up and ready to go, though I think the pirate bag has found a new home already! So snap these up quick, if you love them. Each one is a one of a kind, as they are made from vintage fabrics and scrap bits, so they won’t be put together this way again! Though I love the design, so I’ll gladly do customs. Who knows? Maybe the winner will get one?
