Pyramid pouch in my creative space

Each year I try to hand make gifts for my daughters' friends.  Every year I choose something and everyone gets a variation on this.
With the girls back at school now, the parties are starting again, so I had to get thinking about what to make this year. Here's what I chose...


I've been wanting to make one of these pyramid pouches for a while - and followed the fabulous tutorial on 
Ricochet and Away. (thanks Rikka!)

I added to the pouch, one of the personalised keychain tags I've been making (tutorial here), and then I think we'll fill it with some sweeties or chocolates!

What do you think?  An ok gift for 7-10 year old girls?

Don't know yet what the boys will get...they're always trickier!!  Do you think boys would like these too - but in boy fabric of course!

What gifts to you hand make for kids?

  3. That looks fantastic! I made something very similar to give out as loot bags for my daughter's 13th party last year. I know that my daughter uses hers. She keeps ” girl stuff” in it in her locker at school. I wish I had thought to personalize them like you!

    I wish I had an idea for you for the boys. Sorry.

  6. That's a lovely pouch! I'm only just attempting my first few zipped pouches - it's fun to make smaller items for a change!
