There are so many great shops on Etsy! At Syko ( www.etsy.com/listing/73292662/party-dog-zippered-pouch) I saw a cute little pouch that had a cat with a bird on it's head on the front (it's not there any more, but the link takes you to a similar one with a dog instead of a cat); it was so cute I had to make it for my partner in a recent swap on Craftster.org! I wanted it to be more substantial than just a zippered pouch, so I added a strap and some hardware, and pockets inside and out, and voila! A wonderful little bag that my partner really loved:
I want to make more of these--I think I need one myself!
