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! :-)
