My guild had a zippered pouch swap yesterday. So on Tuesday, I set out to sew my first zippered pouch. Yikes!
As you can see, I am not over the Red and Aqua combo...
I have sewn zippers before, but a pouch? With a lining an all? Scary stuff! I checked a couple tutorials and narrowed down on this one by Lindsay at Craft Buds: That was easy, people, EASY!
|that fabric with the bicycles... I am saving it! that's why I only used it for the top 2 inches of the lining.|
I made a few changes, of course: I layered and quilted my outside fabric, added a pocket in the lining, and a little ribbon on the side.
|There's a pocket in there|
I am still not over my Red and Aqua phase... Can't get over the cuteness. It's pretty girly but thankfully our president Adrienne, who was the recipient loves that colour combo too. I am happy this went to a good home!
And which one did I received? Check this out:
|I am totally stealing the idea of the picture with coloured pencils from Margaret's Facebook page|
This was made by Margaret of Fortune Cove Designs. She hand dyes her fabrics and she made this using a layered scrap cut away technique.
|I love that button!|
This pouch ranks pretty high on the coolness factor. That was my first swap... not my last.
Check out the other ones: So much variety...
|I love my guild!|
