A few of us bloggy friends have decided to swap gifts for birthdays. How fun does that sound? I can’t wait for my bday in June to get here 🙂
This little pouch is so fantastic! I can see this being used for, make-up, sewing stuff while traveling, or even jewelry. It’s a really versatile pattern. Thanks so much Lindsey for such a fun tutorial/pattern!
So, my pouch turned out pretty well. I learned that I put my snap up a bit too high, but overall it’s a win. Those snaps and I are still not friends yet. I had a hard time with them on both cosmetic cases. Sigh. This was my first time using vinyl…phew!
The exterior fabric is Innocent Crush by Anna Maria Horner, the binding is Jewels in Amethyst Lizzy House, and the interior is Cosmo Textiles Chery red with blue mini dots.
Here is the one I made for Julie over @ 627Handworks.
I used the Melody Miller Cheater print I scored at Shop Hop recently from Bunny’s Designs. (sold out now), the binding is the same as my version, Lizzy House Jewels in Amethyst, and the interior is a aqua dot.
Instead of hand sewing the binding on like the tutorial suggests (you know me, not a fan of handsewing!), I decided to machine stitch the binding. At first Fancy (my Janome 6600P) didn’t like that. The vinyl stuck in place. So, I had an idea. I used news print that I use for paper piecing blocks as a barrier. It worked like a charm and I just ripped it off when I was done.
Happy Birthday, Julie!
