This little pouch has been in my head for a while now. I thought i would make it and offer it up as a Weekely Wednesday Workday... even though i am going to my full time job today, you guys should try and make one for you.
I sketched out the basic shape and then defined it with a ruler. I traced it onto the fabric that I wanted to use and began the sewing. The hardest part for me, a non pattern using girl, was to figure out how to place the pocket.
Button holes have never been a doable thing for me so with free motion stitching, i aced this one. It was super cute and funky.
Here is a peek inside the pouch.
And the finished piece with the button and the flap ( my personal favorite part of the pouch)
and... a little sneek peek of what I am working on inisde the pouch
Here is the flap all finished up... prettiful, huh
I use a rag or a piece of muslin to wipe my brush off on. Well... i decided to add color to the free motion quilting part by wiping the brush off onto the fabric. I am loving using it and adding in the color. I am already working on phase two of this pouch. I need it a bit bigger with a gusset. Yikes.... can i really pull off a gusset? We shall see....
what are you working on?
I have one new piece to post from friend Claudia for our Home Sweet Home challenge...
any other takers????
