Prom Night Memories: a Snappy Snapdragon Pouch!

Prom Memories, everyone has them, right? What a funny -- and fun -- reminder this purse-sized pouch will be! I love to sort through my fabric collections, finding new and different ways to combine fabrics to make these bags. I’m excited to share this snappy little pouch with you – and know you'll find plenty of uses for this adorable little bag. If you see a color combo you love, snap it up today, as there will seldom be more than a few in any given fabric pairing. In every case, the fabric trim on the exterior is also the interior lining.

THE FINE PRINT:
Snapdragon Pouches are interfaced to hold their shape, and fully lined. Stress points are reinforced for durability; pouches feature serged seams to prevent fraying. Sizes vary slightly, but bags are approximately 4" tall x 7" wide (10.16 cm x 17.78 cm) when measured flat; the bag's bottom is about 2.5" (6.35 cm) deep. Simply tug gently on the ribbon pulls, and the pouch snaps open. Very nice for anyone with limited mobility, as there are no zippers or buttons to fret about.

The actual bag you are purchasing is shown in the top three photos; the final two pix are generic, and show features common to all Snapdragon pouches. All items are made in our pet-free, smoke-free home.

I encourage you to spot clean only, or hand-wash as needed, and air dry. For that reason, you may want to Scotchgard your items. Though my bags are very well-constructed, I do not recommend machine washing. Please consult Policies section for additional details on fabric care, shipping, etc.

THE BACK STORY:
Clementine’s chum Snapdragon was always fumbling in her saddlebags for something. It seemed like that little gal just couldn’t keep track of her belongings – the inside of her saddle bags were a mess, full of ginger snap crumbs and busted up licorice snaps.

Clementine decided her pal needed a sensible-and-clever little pouch, something small and snappy -- like Snapdragon herself! So she thought on it a while, and then with a snap of her fingers said, “Aha - there’s a snap for that! I have an idea for a bag that will really measure up.”

She snapped right to it, “borrowed” her papa’s tape measure, cut the metal tape into pieces, and quick as a snap made the very first Snapdragon bag.

These are just the right size to corral all of Snapdragon’s little treasures - hair clips and bottle caps, bubble gum and pencil stubs. Now her special belongings don’t just fall to the bottom of her bag in a jumble.

Now other folks find them handy, too. Snapdragon’s big sis, Poppy, keeps one in her dungaree pocket, with a small mirror and some lip rouge, so the fellas will take notice of her looking pretty snappy when she mosies into to the general store to get a soda pop.

Snapdragon’s mama, Lily, keeps a Snapdragon pouch in each of her knitting bags, filled with a crochet hook, a pencil, and other small necessaries. She has another one in her valise to hold trinkets, and even one in her market basket for her shopping list and a hanky.

ONE LAST THING:
Other items included in photos are shown to provide scale, suggest possible uses, make you smile, or to evoke my inner Clementine. Sorry, these items do not convey.
