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.
