When we were in Hawaii I bought this little pouch in a Hawaiian print and was so taken with the pattern, I hoped to try it. Sadly, they didn't sell a pattern, just the finished pouch. When I got home I started my quest (there was no way I could figure this one out, I tried) and found it—the Sweetpea Pod, by Lazy Girl Designs. I bought my pattern at this etsy shop (there isn't a PDF) but many other shops sell it. Also, I needed some zippers and loose zipper pulls. I got an assortment here. So, although I needed to buy a few things, this is a pretty great stash buster. It requires 10" square pieces for the outside, inside, and lining and this makes two pouches. They are really fun to make and the one zipper thing is so satisfying. I didn't use fusible lining, just whatever I had scrap of, polar fleece, thick cotton flannel—these all worked fine. They fit my oils so nicely. I'm thinking about offering them as a upgraded gift wrapping option.
Okay, I am looking at Spiralizer, but can't quite get here. I have a food processor, a mandoline, and a kitchenaid (I saw they have a spiral attachment that seems more sturdy, KitchenAid Spiralizer Attachment ) What about you all, have you incorporated this spiral style into your cooking on a long term basis? Do the kids like it? I love slaws and always use my box grater for that or the food processor. I just wonder about this spiral shape and if it is too limiting in the long run? I'm not sure and would love your thoughts. Also, the kitchenaid one is so much more $$, but I love kitchenaid attachments. What say you?
