As you can probably guess this post is about pouches, and lots of them. Ok, so I kind of went on a pouch making spree and it felt like Santa's workshop has moved into my living room. Want to see?
There were so many tutorials, patterns, and different fabrics I used for my pouches that I'm having a really hard time coming up with words to go with all the pictures. So, for now let me just show you my final products and I'll try to get back to them later and give more details.
I also found a wonderful tutorial showing how to make a boxed pouch. What I really liked about it is that it shows the way to have all the edges finished, no raw seams, no bias tape.
Sorry, it's not easy to photograph a boxy pouch. This picture really does not do it justice, it looks way better in real life.
Would you be surprised if I told you I'm burnt out? I was planning on making a lot more pouches and bags (I had this self-imposed idea to make handmade presents for all my children's teachers, friends, etc.). And suddenly I realized that instead of the usual enjoyment while sewing it turned into something I had to do. So, I decided to buy the rest of the presents, no more pouches for me right now, thank you! and only work on something I will enjoy. Probably a Christmas table runner for our dining table. I'll let you know soon.
How are you doing this Christmas season?
