If you are maybe following Jude Hill's blog you will recognize
her "beans". It was an "aha-moment" for me - (thank you Jude, for

would just fit in. I stitched buttonholes around it and laced it
with the same red cotton a broder. I added two buttonhole lace points
in white. Sorry the tips were cut off by my photographer, ha!

this pouch. It is my favorite tutorial.
I will fill in chocolates!
