Zipper pouch and rug

Petit gifts for my friends
Some people asked me about the patterns what I used for my previous post.
One is from kokka.
They have lots of cute patterns.

And the other one is from this blog.
The pattern is this PDF.
Please print it out in 200% scale.

I'm sorry they both are written in Japanese only...

These days I couldn't work so hard because of the heat, humidity and my big  belly. My tomato moves a lot and now weigh approx. 3.7 pounds (1700g) now.
Zipper pouch for diapers
I made a pouch to bring her diapers.
This is from a famous pattern in Japan.
Zipper pouch for diapers
I made one several years ago for my sister and liked the pattern.
At the bottom of this page, you can see the "START" button to see the how-to and the link to download the how-to and pattern.

I also made a small rug for my bath room with fabrics.
I ripped some fabrics into long strip and crocheted it. My hands got tired after the work but I liked it very much.

These are petit gifts for my friends from high school.
They are very simple and easy to make. I enjoyed choose the leather and fabrics thinking of them (* v *)!!!

What a pretty diaper bag! I love the little pouches. I like the rug you made too. You are very clever. It is really hot here in Virginia too. Tomato is going to have lots of pretty things made by Mommy. :)

Mai, love that zipper bag. My 2 1/2 year old has one like it only manufactured as a men's bathroom travel bag. He's been carrying it with his dipaers since he was about 14 months old. He carries it like a suitcase. You little Tomato will love that. And now I've got the pattern in case my boy wears his out then I can make another. ~Renee

You have so much knowledge about this issue, and so much passion. You also know how to make people rally behind it, obviously from the responses.
