Necessity is truly the mother of invention

Problem:

This is what I had to dig out of the baby bag every time we went to pray the Rosary with our little group (bad and embarrassing, I know...) I could have used sandwich bags, but that just didn't suit me. It lacked that certain... je ne sais quoi. Every week I would look at the mess in my hands and think, "I really need to make something nice to carry these in."


Solution:
Dug through my fabric box and pulled out the remnant of a Pier I placemat (of all things) that I bought several years ago (I used several of them to make pillows). Sewed up the side, made dividers out of felt, sewed those down the middle (so that I could have a rosary on each side of every slot) and voila! A decorative rosary pouch that holds 8 rosaries very nicely! As an added bonus, the length and width of it fits perfectly in the side pocket of my baby bag.

Thank you! I got to take it to our Rosary group last Friday, and it worked wonderfully!
