It's my father-in-laws birthday today and since I'm trying to make most gifts homemade I had to come up with something for a guy, which is not easy. I'd have to say girls are much easier to make things for it seems like. So I came up with this little pouch to hold the future tobacco pipe I'm sure he'll be getting soon from his son. Now, he doesn't actually smoke, unless with my husband or my brother-in-law and my mother-in-law does not love the pipe but I know it's a male bonding thing so I'm helping him along. The fabric is flannel that looks like tweed and I'm loving making things with it, especially more "manly" things and the button is one from my sister-in-law, again from the Czech Republic. I'm going to be sad when I've used all those up!

i agree, it's so hard to make things for men. but you've come up with the perfect thing!

Thanks so much! I should have bought more of that fabric because it's great for guys. And thanks so much for your encouraging comments.
