Pattern Description:

Print. Sew. Love.

In Singapore, many working women don't carry their bags out when they go for lunch.

Instead they hold their wallets, handphone, keys and a packet of tissue in their hands.

I designed this little drawstring pouch for these women to carry these essentials during lunchtime.

I made the bottom round so the pouch need not be too large yet wide enough to contain what they need.

This little pouch can be folded up and kept in their handbags when it is not needed.

This pouch is versatile. It can be used on any occasion apart from lunchtime *wink wink*.

Ooh, it's reversible too.
