pouchini

Hello, happy Saturday!

The other day I was in a mood for some quick, non - quilty sewing projects. You know, the instant gratification kind of projects. I wanted to make something fast as well as useful, and that's how these "pouchinis" came to be.

What? you don't know what "pouchinis" are? - that's what my daughters call these little pouches.


 Aren't they adorable? They are small (3"tall x 5"wide x 1.5"deep), just the right size to fit a few necessities my girls tend to carry around in their purses.


 I just love how perfectly adorable and happy they turned out, especially this one - using Tasha Noel's The Simple Life fabric.

 
I must say, working on these little pouches was such a nice break from quilting while still spending some fun time at the machine. Do you sometimes feel that way? Wanting to sew but not wanting to quilt?


Wishing you all a wonderfully crafty weekend. I'm off to get some more instant gratification projects done, Christmas stockings are so calling my name.

  7. Such a cute shape. I've got to make a pouch this week to hold a gift card -- I wasn't planning to box out the bottom like that, but now I'm tempted. I thought that line was a bit sugary for me, but I missed that clothesline print -- it is darling! (And sugary, but too darling to matter.)

  9. These are so totally adorable!! And YES I'm in one of those moods right now - overwhelmed by the quilts I've started and happiest making littles...

  10. I definitely feel the same way. Sometimes you just want the (comparitively) instant gratification of whipping up a wee bag or a cushion. Making a quilt is such an undertaking and the weight of WIPs languishing and begging for attention can be overwhelming sometimes. Bring on the pouchini!

  12. The Simple Life fabric is adorable and so are the pouches! I made stockings a few years ago and made an extra just in case we had another kid, and then we had Veronica a year later. I think I mostly enjoy quilts but sometimes I do like variety or something quick like binding. Hope you had a great weekend!

    1. Same question here. I want to retain the rectangular shape instead of getting the trapezoid when you box out the bottom.
