Hello, hello! I hope you had a relaxing and enjoyable weekend!
Sometimes it’s nice to switch things up a bit and sew some quick and satisfying non-clothes projects. I made several pouches as birthday gifts for friends this weekend (two grown-up birthday parties in one weekend – so fun!).
The first pouch you see above is made from a sturdy burlap-esque fabric with a variety of colorful animals.
The second pouch is made from one of my favorite fabrics from Bitters, a fabulous store which sells all manners of amazing things including Heath ceramics. It’s a beautifully textured basket-weave cotton – I’m planning on making one for myself with this fabric.
This last one is a whimsical cotton print and is slightly smaller than the other two, measuring at about 4×6 inches whereas the others are about 5×7 inches. My favorite way of sewing these types of zipper pouches is from this book. I also made a teeny matching pouch for K using the same fabric as this glamorous dress from a couple of weeks ago. She immediately proceeded to fill it with her favorite trinkets.
I love making these and may have to create at least a dozen more!
