Last month at the Portland Modern Quilt Guild we all turned in handmade pouches for a swap with the Vancouver Modern Quilt Guild! I was given a name, and she basically gave me free reign to make what I wanted, but she asked if it could be used to hold her sewing supplies. I thought about it for a few days and finally pulled out this stack of fabrics from my stash.
Aquas, dark blue, green and black and white prints. I think these would make a great quilt don't you? It was fun to make something small out of them though. I cut a lot of 1-1/2" squares and laid out the rows to sew together. It was pretty fun.
I hand stitched the lettering using DMC floss that matched the fabrics. Stitch, Stitch, Stitch seemed appropriate for a sewing bag. I tried taking "progress" pictures... it makes things a bit more real. I am a messy sewer. When I am in the middle of a project stuff is everywhere!
I love how it turned out, I see more of these in the future. It ended up being 10" across x 9" deep.
These pouches got shipped off to Vancouver, I can't wait to see what my partner made for me! Swaps are SEW fun :)
