Zippered Pouch to Swap

This month, the Maritime Modern Quilt Guild is doing a zippered pouch exchange with the Modern Quilt Guild Victoria.  I am excited for two reasons.  First, I have just made my first pouch just a couple months ago and it's just the kind of quick project that I can fit in my busy schedule, but is still satisfying.  Second, I met some of MQG Victoria's wonderful members just a few weeks ago, and I am so glad our two guilds are working together.

Here is my finished pouch:

The aqua and green chevron print was my colour inspiration

We are to fill our pouches with some goodies.  Without revealing its entire contents, here are a couple things I made.  First, a first needle book...

I really have to make one for myself...

... then, a pretty lanyard.  If you are looking to pretty up those ugly promotional lanyards you have collected at various conferences, here's how to do it.

So glad I could find those green scissors.

I am happy with my decision to go "matchy" with the accessory.  I hope whoever gets my pouch likes it.  I had lots of fun making it.


  1. Just fabulous, Dominique! The aqua and green is gorgeous.

  2. Beautiful! Love the colours. 😀

  3. Someone is going to be very lucky to get your pouch and goodies!

  4. Love those colours, Dominique! Now that I see all the fun stuff you're tucking in yours, I've got to get looking for goodies! :)

  5. Lovely ideas for carting all that is needed to work on projects away from home. Love the colour combination.

  6. The pouch is adorable - I love that matchstick quilting and the colours! Cute accessories, too, Dominique. Your exchange partner is going to love these!

  7. Your swap partner will love this!!


Yay! Comments! I love reading all the comments and do my best to respond, (though sometimes, life gets in the way).
