Bud Pouch

Recently, I purchased a nice pair of Sony earbuds and sometimes like to take them to work or elsewhere.  To transport them without getting tangled in other things, I quick whipped up a little pouch to carry them around in.  Real quick project - took about an hour to make :-)

  1. LOL At first glance I thought your made a pouch for flower buds on the tree! I've got too much gardening on the mind I guess ;p I'm definitely going to make your pouch as my ear buds keep getting tangled in my purse too.

  2. Thank you for posting this! I have been looking for a small pouch for jewelry on weekend vacatons. This looks perfect!
