Weekend Sewing: My Leftovers

Hi everyone!  I was so excited to actually get to stitch somethings together this weekend.  I did have to blow the dust off my machine first, though.  LOL!

In about 24 hours I managed to finish 2 bee blocks, a mini quilt (with photos for a tutorial - coming tomorrow!), cut squares for a granny square quilt, and make this fun pouch with leftovers from the tutorial project ...

I love this pattern from Michelle Patterns (formerly Keyka Lou).  It is really easy to follow and I love how nicely it finishes without those bumpy zipper corners.

I modified the pattern slightly ... it is a wee bit shorter and narrower to accommodate for using 8 Marmalade mini charm squares for each side.  The red dot is from Vintage Modern ... love that you can mix Bonnie & Camille's prints from the different collections.  Marmalade arrives in October ... oh, the agony of waiting!  (Side note: we have more Marmalade precuts arriving on Tuesday. :-)

Everything in the pouch except the lining, zipper, and interfacing was left over from my mini quilt project kit.  (I will share the tutorial for the mini quilt tomorrow - stay tuned!)

I think it turned out really cute.  The quilting is faux ... I just stitched through the fabric and interfacing to add a little somethin-somethin. :-)  I made one other version of this pouch in FMF a few months ago - you can see it here.

Looking forward to sharing my tutorial with you tomorrow ... for now I am off to bed.

Happy Sewing! :-)
