Jelly Clip Pouches

Merry Christmas! This time of year is always special, even if we don't put up a tree or decorate. When family doesn't visit, there's no reason to go to the effort of making the house festive. Instead, I focus on the reason for this holiday, and spend time making gifts for others.

One of the several homemade items I spent time on was Jelly Clip Bags. It all began with this one, an aqua Jelly Clip that came with my aqua Janome Derby sewing machine when I purchased it from MassDrop. It was fun to sort through my bag of selvages to coordinate colors with it.

I still love shopping from MassDrop, a bulk-buying discount company. If you haven't signed up yet, you're missing out!

Anyway, after I made one little (4") Jelly Clip Bag, I had to make more. They were the perfect gifts for friends, line dancing instructors, and my Bible study leader and hair stylist. I had a blast picking out fabrics to go with the clip colors. I managed to find a few prints that were appropriately Florida-tropical. 




I hope your Christmas was merry! Linda

  2. 15 purses of cuteness! I'm impressed, especially as I have never made one of these types of purses!

  6. These are so cute, Linda. Funny, I was thinking of trying one! I finally found the frames at a brick and mortar shop ( I'm no much of an on-line shopper). After seeing all your pretties, I'll just have to pick one up next time I visit that shop, and give it a go. XO

  8. So adorable! Isn't it fun to make sweet little gifts for the people who bless our daily lives? Did you use a glue or sew construction to attach the clip?

  9. Those are just the cutest little bags. I love all your selvage ones and those with the tropical theme. I needed to make about 15 little gifts for 2 of my groups that I host the luncheon for during the Christmas time, but my DH had some heart problems (cardiac cath and adverse reactions to medication afterwards) that it threw me off for making anything little gifts. Maybe I should start now for next year! I guess the tops are from your favorite online shopping place you referenced? I still have lots and lots of selvages.

  14. What cute, and useful, little gifts! I can imagine your recipients would have been very happy with these, Linda. This is such a clever idea, and the fabrics you've used look great fun (I spy that rainbow petal fabric from Jo Ann๐Ÿ˜Š). I feel happy just reading this post ๐Ÿ˜„
