One side has these lovely Melody Miller View Finders
The other side has these Melody Miller Typewriters.
With bold fabrics like these I didn't feel the need for any extra embellishment. I used more texty print in side giving the impression that maybe it had been whipped up on those type writers.

And I have to say it went together really well and yet I'm left with this nagging, horrible feeling that both pouch 1 & 2 have gone together remarkably well. Too well. Which has left me thinking what if the glue is only superficially holding the purse together. What if I send one of these off to my partner and they go and put stuff of a weighty nature in the pouch, sling it in their bag and then later when they retrieve the purse, they actually find they are retrieving the pouch sans frame and contents... I may wake up screaming in the middle of the night having nightmares about this now!!
And as I'm over achieving on the making front at the moment and possibly about to be without my sewing machine if I take it in for service soon, I've started on a little embroidery - inspired by the many I keep seeing popping up on flickr and in blog posts.
I'm thinking this will end up as a mini decorative hoop or maybe an inset feature panel in a pouch.
