A Small Bag with Many Uses

My goal is to be resourceful and not waste any remnants.
I bought the fusible fabric at Hancock Fabric.
Since they are going out of business, there is a minimum requirement
of purchasing 2 yards.
I made a large and a small tote with 1 1/2 yards.
I then purchased another 2 yards and used a portion to make another large tote.
I had a 9.5 X 17.5 piece of fusible fabric and I thought it was the perfect size for a small clutch or pouch.
The pouch has many uses, such as a cosmetic bag, a bookkeeper, a tablet holder, etc.
I had a half yard of a tropical fish fabric, so I ironed it onto the fusible foam.
Then I faced a lining fabric onto the fish fabric, and stitched a 1/8 seam allowance all around, leaving an opening to turn the fabric right side out.
I stitched 1/4 inch seams to add texture and body.
I had a batik remnant that I cut into a 2.5 strip to use as binding.
I used velcro to fasten the bag.

I have some fusible foam left over, and I’m thinking of making a wallet.
