An Embroidered Bicycle Pouch for a Bike

Yeah, you heard me right:  it's a pouch that attaches to your bike AND it's got bicycle embroidery...how appropriate and quaint.



The bicycle pattern is available for FREE at Flamingo Toes...thank you, Beverly!  I never could have come up with such a cute doodle on my own!

I've made one of these pouches before for my sheep giveaway, but this time I added straps to the back so it can be lashed to the handlebars. 



Thanks again to Make it Modern for sharing this wonderful box pouch tutorial!

Now that it's finished and strapped to my bicycle, I really want to keep it!  True - I don't really need it.  I've got a grand wire basket to hold all my stuff.  Why would I need a pouch?  Because it's cute, that's why.  Alas, I have made this pouch for a dear friend's birthday and I will give it to her later tonight.  I think it is a very thoughtful gift for a gal with a basket-less bicycle.  She can keep all sorts of little necessities in it while she's out and about...a garage door opener, house keys, a bit of spending money, chapstick, mace (she might venture into a sketchy neighborhood), cell phone, or what have you.


The interior is this cute star fabric, which is right up my dear friend's alley.  Did you know that we have matching star tattoos?  A testament to us being 19 years old and sooooo free-thinking and independent...ah, youth.  Anyhow, I'm sure she'll really dig it and find that it's a very thoughtful gift from her old pal, Meg.

  16. I'm a bit late, but this is gorgeous! It makes me want to dig my bike out of my outside loo and find somewhere to ride to! Maybe I could have one on my car steering wheel instead?
