I've had these pouches on my list of things to do ever since Anna from Noodlehead posted the tutorial on her blog.
Last night I made one and then this morning finished the other one. These are so quick to make and a lot easier than I thought.
Anna's tutorial shows you the measurements to make three different size pouches. The ones I chose to do were the medium size. I thought the small one would be too small but after making this one I've changed my mind. The large one must be huge and hold loads of things.
The one with the green zip is made from upholstery fabric and the one with the blue zip is upholstery fabric on the bottom section and quilting cotton on the top half. The fabric was very thin compared to the bottom half so I added a couple of layers of fusible interfacing.
As soon as I have some spare time I'm going to be making more of these and maybe even one in red just to keep my friend Liz happy.
I love how it opens up completely making it so easy to get into it.
As you can see there's loads of room for more.
Now I have to stop playing around and get back to more serious sewing. I'm nearly finished making a bag as part of a blog hop I'm taking part in and I'm also waiting on a test bag coming very soon. Today I was sent a bag pattern for testing by Janelle at Emmaline Bags.
This is the first time I'm testing for Janelle, she's such a sweet, kind lady and I can't wait to make the new bag she's designed.
Happy Sewing to all of you.
