Today, I wanted to share with you about my latest additions in my shop - flex frame pouches.
The exterior of these pouches are made by combining several different fabrics, mainly featuring the floral prints from the "Betty Dear" line from my favorite fabric designer Darlene Zimmerman. I love these beautiful floral prints!
For those of you who are not familiar with "flex frames", these are the 12 cm (4.5 inch) sized flex frames that I used to make these pouches. By the way, flex frames are very popular in Japan.
The opening area is approximately 12 cm (or 4.5 inches) wide as shown below.
Flex frames make the pouches very convenient to use. You only need one hand to open the pouch, with just a touch of a "squeeze"!
These pouches are fully padded with fusible fleece, so it's safe enough to carry your valuable items such as cell phone, smart phone, digital camera, other gadgets, jewelry, cosmetics, craft items, etc. securely inside.
The pouches has flat bottom of approximately 1.5 inch (4 cm) in depth. With the fleece batting used throughout, these flex frame pouches are pretty sturdy and they can stand on its own like this.
I think these pouches will make wonderful Mother's day gift ;)
And here is just a few update about my fundraising efforts through my online shop sales proceeds...
As of today (4/19/2011), I've raised approximately USD $400 from my shop's sales proceeds, which I continue to plan to donate 100% to the American Red Cross Japan Relief. I am short of $100 to reach my initial goal of $500 in sales proceeds... which I think is great!!!
My fundraising effort continues, and here are some of other new items added to my shop recently.
More Reversible mini drawstring bags in eye catching fabrics...
And this is a newly added padded long zipper pouch in Roses on blue stripes, which is made of Japanese imported quality cotton.
Thank you so much for reading my post, and I just can't thank enough to all of you for supporting my fundraising efforts for Japan Earthquake and Tsunami Relief, through kind words and encouragements, and through purchases from my shop.
*Arigato* to you all, and I'll be back soooon!
