bagmaker tuesday no.5 (boxy pouch)


Hello lovelies, welcome !!!

Ever since I made my Range Backpack using waxed canvas, I've been itching to sew up a waxed canvas pouch as well. I went back and forth on which pattern to choose and in the end I decided to go with a boxy pouch.


I used my own free tutorial to whip up this fabulously sturdy and wonderfully "rugged" looking pouch. I was a bit worried at first that waxed canvas might be too thick for this pattern as I only made it using quilting cotton before but the canvas sewed beautifully and I had no issues at all.



One thing I really, really love about this pattern is there's no need to box all these corners. All you need to do is bind two edges and you end up with a lovely boxy pouch with no raw edges on the inside.

The finished pouch is 7'' wide x 2'' tall x 3'' deep. I think I'll use mine to keep some of my sewing supplies organized, but it would definitely make a great pencil or make up pouch as well.

Well, that's my little project for the week. Have you sewed up something you'd like to share with us? If so please use the button below to link up to your blogpost of IG photo.

Wishing you all a happy and creative day. Svetlana

bagmaker tuesday no.4 (plus pattern sale)


Hello everyone, welcome to Bagmaker Tuesday!

I started a bit of Christmas sewing over the last few days and it felt amazing to have some gifts checked off my mile long list :)


I made two Devon pouches using some of my all time favorite fabrics. The top one is Cloud 9 Birds of a Feather cotton print and the bottom one is Carolyn Friedlander's Euclid Essex.

I so enjoy making these double zip pouches. They are super fun to make and the finished size is just perfect for make up, pens, pencils, or to keep one's small devices and chargers organized.

(I buy all my metal zippers from Zipit on Etsy and I use 1/8'' leather lace for my zipper pulls)



While I was in gift making mood, I also sewed up this simple, but super practical tote bag for my sister. I used lovely Tiger Plant Essex linen and waxed canvas for the exterior and duck canvas for the lining which make for a beautifully sturdy everyday tote bag.

Three gifts down, many many more to go. Which I'm kind of excited about because sewing up gifts for friends and family is my most favorite thing to do.

How about you? Have you been working on any small projects? If so I hope you'll link up to your blog post or IG so we can all be inspired.
