I wanted a break form bags so decided to make some pouches. These were really quick to sew up and so much fun.
These are the Dumpling Pouch and the Across the Pond Pouch. It's so cute, looks like a boat.

Actually I made two boat shaped pouches but gave one to my daughter before I had a chance to take a photo of it.

The black one below is the same pattern as the across the pond pouch shown above, only difference is I made it without the darts do it was flat.

This last one has got to be one of my favourites. I love the shape and the colours on this one.
It's a pencil case. I have been wanting to know how to do the binding at the side of the zipper like this one for ages and came across a tutorial but can't remember where. If I find it again I will post the link. 
I found it eventually so here it is http://www.nicolaforemanquilts.com/1/post/2012/03/how-to-make-a-pencil-case-a-tutorial.html

That's it for the pouches. Just have one last thing to show you in my next post.
