I am not at all a fan of the cloth pouch that came with my cup (bright pink with flowers, plus it says "diva" all over it) so I got crafty last night and made a new one:

I'm really happy with how it turned out, and I wanted to show it off a little! I bought one of those quarter yard bundles of cotton cloth intended for quilting, Joann Fabrics had a huge selection at $0.99 each! I'm not usually much of a seamstress, but I got a little help with this and it turned out really easy. We used a machine, but it shouldn't be too hard to hand sew it either. Anyone else make their own bag and want to show their results?

Also: I'm thinking of posting some detailed instructions for making one, would anyone be interested in that?

Nice pouch!!!! :)

Detailed instructions (by machine and hand, I'd be doing it by hand) would be amazing if/when you can spare the time :)

Thank you! I'm thinking of making a another with the second fabric color I bought (once you start you can't stop) and I'd be doing that one by hand because I don't have my own machine.

You're welcome :)

Yay! I can't wait to see a pic of that one too :)

this is really pretty! well done! :)

I have little patience for crafts, but I'm pretty sure that others who do crafts will appreciate the instructions :)

Love the fabric design. It looks great! I'm sure many would love instructions, especially with fabric dimensions. Some people can't sew without a pattern, so being able to measure the area before sewing would help them out. It seems easy, but some people don't function like that. It's why I couldn't learn how to sew from my mother. She fails at it. She is who I go to when I forget how to replace the needle though.. she is amazing at that. Haha.

Thanks! For sure I can include dimensions. The original fabric piece for this is just one rectangle and then I can give measurements for the seam allowances and where to fold it and such as well.
