I hope you all had a very nice Saturday. We spent ours staying indoors, the weather is just awful, extremely hot, humid and it keeps raining on and off all day. Yuck!
So, I ended up sewing and obsessing over some pouches.
I have never done any swap before and so I was really excited when I was able to join in the Pretty Little Pouch Swap 2. I love pouches, I make pouches, it was a perfect swap for me. Then I got my partner assignment and my obsessing started. My partner's taste is quite different from mine so I spent a lot of time browsing her Flickr and blog to make sure I make something she likes, while at the same time keep a part of me in it, too.
This is what I came up with.
Of course, once I made one pouch I could not stop there. I had to make more, right? And more I made.
I made this one using some gorgeous European linen and I appliqued seedlings in flower pots. (I got my inspiration from here).
Next came some ditty pouches by Keyka Lou. I ordered my pattern here. I made them for my son, thus such boyish fabrics.
All in all, I'd say it was a pretty successful "pouch" day.
Enjoy your Sunday. I know I will, we're taking the kids to Shedd Aquarium here in Chicago. Should be fun.
