Heather Ross Rainbow Pouch

If you follow my blog you might be getting sick of seeing pouches but I have another to share with you. This is a pouch that I made for my swap partner for the Pretty Little Pouch Swap on Flickr. I had never done anything rainbow before or with Heather Ross but I had a little bicycle sent to me in a package and thought it would make my partners day. I sure hope it does. I had a lot of fun making this!

I first cut out a hexagon and then basket weaved the rainbow on either side. I decided to put the bicycle in where the orange is since its coloration worked best there.

I used red for the lining and a darker orange zipper. This pouch will not make you grumpy that is for sure!

I also decided to work on my hand quilting skills. I quilted on the inside of the hexagon with yellow and on either side if the inside of the border text print with a cream thread.

I used the Noodlehead open mouth pouch tutorial size small. Except the gussets are a little smaller on the inside because I didn’t want the panel too close to the bottom.

I have been SO into zipper pouches lately--I made 6 last week and only stopped when I ran out of zippers (I got 30 new ones yesterday from zipit, woo!). I love your little bag--the fuzzy cut hexy and scrappy chevrons are so cute!

I love it! Of course, I am partial to rainbow projects. But the little bicycle makes it so playful and cute! Your pouches are inspiring me--all my friends seem to have birthdays in May and June, so I always make a half dozen of the same thing and give as gifts. So I'll need to buy a bunch of zippers--where do you get yours?
