Map Pouch

   As you saw on Sunday I got this awesome map print fabric from the Scrap Store. It's kind of plastic-y and I think it's what people call oil cloth, but I'm not sure. 

   I love it so much I wanted to make something with it right away. I chose an easy pouch and made it long enough to fit all of the United States on.

   On the back is the North Pacific Ocean. 
   I sewed across the corners of the pouch to give it a bit more body.

   I used a greenish grey coloured fabric for the lining to match the outside fabric.

   These are the pouches I made last year using the same method. When I sold them at craft fairs I put toiletries in to make them perfect Christmas gifts. Things like little bottles of shampoo or shower gel, and a small flannel/wash cloth.
   Any ideas on what else I could put in them to market them as gifts?
