I agree with WindChime...It's always nice to have another pouch on the belt. If they'd like, people could even use that to pin favors to as well. Your design is great and the pouch is wonderful. I wouldn't change it.

Thanks for the encouragement to go ahead with the little belt pouches.  I mentioned it to my grand daughter that I was going to be making a couple dozen for her Aunt & Uncle and she immediately wanted to know if I could make some for her friends in the finer chenille yarns for the ladies!  Oooookay.  I know what I'm going to be doing!

Thanks again,

Marge

My sister, Lady Pegos, and I made our favors today.

They're made out of FIMO.  Mine are supposed to look like dragonflies (the wings I wear are dragonfly wings).  And Lady Pegos made turtles (Pegos = Galapagos, she studied there)

I don't have a picture of hers, but here are mine .... there are pins on the back.

Chris said that my favors for TRF 2008 look creepy..... :'(

They are supposed to be the Element of Air. (All the feathers are different colors for each one)


They are made out of sculpty with feathers and pin backs on them. At least their eyes are closed... :-[

I think they look serene.  I'd love to have one.

Awe, thank you Grov, and of course you may have one. I have them in all combinations of colors so feel free to pick one to your liking. I will be making some every weekend due to me running out I am sure of it. I am not sure where I might locate you but I can say that I can be found every day at 11:45 right in front of Lord Randolphs Chain mail booth getting ready for the parade. As well as after the parade I will be in the fashion show at 12:30. So you can meet me there if you like! ^_^

Hope to see you soon! YAY for TRF in one week!

I really like them, Cass. Maybe a little bit of beading or a swash of paint...needs some white to it! :)

I'm in the process of making a swag rag to put all of my favors on but that's not going so well. The fact that I don't have a sewing machine makes it interesting so all sewing is done by hand.

Not to mention the favors I need to make this week. >.<

Thanks Elo, I was going to put some kinda shimmer on them then perhaps glaze them or something. I am not really sure but that is the base and even if I can not get anything else added to them, at least they are all put together and could be given as is. But I might find something else really cool to add to them. ^_^

Those are very nice favors, Element of Air.  Did you use a mold? 

I used white shimmery eye shadow on some beads I made not too long ago and it turned out pretty nice.  I baked it on the surface of the clay, but you can mix the eye shadow with the glaze, too.

I would love to say that i did not use a mold but alas, i did! I am thinking about putting a shimmer pigment on them and then placing a glaze over that to seal them from everything.
