One day, my son came home from school and asked me casually if I have any spare lunchtime pouch lying around. Yes, lying around.
My son is in his school's Chinese Orchestra and he plays the suona.
My son currently plays a larger size suona.
Anyway, I have no idea how it came about, but my son wanted to either sell or give a girl in his Chinese Orchestra a lunchtime pouch to keep her suona metal horn.
But I don't have any lunchtime pouch lying around. Seriously I don't. Well, except the one I made for my pattern and that one I'm taking to my grave.
So I offered to make her one. That was a while ago. Having stopped sewing for so long due to my previously on-going saga with my digestive health, I found it hard to start sewing. Finally one day, I felt ready to start sewing and then my gallbladder incident happened. Last week, I felt I had fully recovered from my surgery and I started measuring the horn and it didn't take me too long to complete the pouch.
I used a linen polka dot I have lying around and for the lining, a big polka dot cotton I have remnants of from my craft market days.
