Edible cake isn't the only thing I managed to accomplish over the weekend, in case you were wondering. It was very nearly the only thing, but not quite. I also made up this little pouch for my sister.
See, the intrepid girl reporter needs a handy way to make sure she always has her necessary smallish items (such as extra batteries) on her as she dashes off to the reporter-type places she frequents.
The idea here is that she can clip this little pouch to her ID tag thingy, thereby never forgetting it. And it has handy little pencil-holding loops of twill tape, too! It is in the mail on its way to her now, so we'll see how well it actually functions in a few days.
Also, with this, I used my mock overlock stitch to finish the inside seams, and I like it. I really should use my not-just-plain-straight-stitching stitches more often.
