You may have noticed lately I have been making quite a few pouches. Well I have about three or more to show you although I think that I am going to spread it out and by the end of the Monday June 24th one lucky reader will have a chance to win a pouch and perhaps some goodies within. (I totally neglected being on time with the planning for my 100th post giveaway. I had good intentions…oops) Plus I am going to go to the local guild quilt show this coming weekend and I am sure I will find something great to put inside a pouch!
I have to say that the satisfaction of completing small quick projects is pretty great. Which reminds me I have three not so small projects I should be working on. I don’t think my goal will be completed again, darn.
The first pouch I am going to share with you is a dumpling pouch. I made this as an addition to my mug rug I sent for my partner. I have always wanted to make one so I decided to be brave, lol. I thought the curve would be tricky but it really wasn’t at all! If you follow the instructions and baste it in first and clip your zip everything should turn out great! I would totally recommend this little tutorial at Michelle Patterns.
I made the smaller one which she said was tricky but I didn’t find it so. I am looking forward to making this little pouch again but perhaps in a scrappy patchwork quilt as you go method. I think that making all these pouches has definitely made me less afraid of zippers and I was like “take that zippers” after I sewed one on a curve. lol.
I will see you in a couple days with pouch number two! Hope everyone is having a great weekend!
And PS we are finally moving soon! I can not wait for my sewing room! Aug 15th! Yay!
