A Dick and Jane pouch for sweet Jane

Are you sick of my pouches yet?  You very well could be.  Apparently I'm not yet because I keep on making them and finding new purposes for them.  Last month was my cute niece Jane's first birthday and I of course wanted to make a homemade gift for her party.  But, I didn't have a lot of time on my hands that weekend, so I purchased a set of these vintage looking Dick and Jane alphabet books at Costco and made a cute pouch to put them in.  I was in such a rush (made the pouch right before the party) that I didn't snap any pictures of the project, but had my sister Angela send me some, and I thought I'd share them with you.

This is the pouch, it's pretty large actually because it holds 26 of these little books.  

What do you think?  Cute, right?  I really liked the idea of the book pouch for a gift, I think it just makes the book that much more special.  If you'd like to make your own, here's the pouch tutorial, just adjust the size to fit your needs.

Way to jazz up the gift, Fancy! Love it :)
p.s. I miss you. Why do you live a state away again?
