lola pencil pouch

I woke up way too early this morning and since everyone was still asleep, I decided to do a little quiet clean up in my sewing room. I only managed to put away two or three FQs when I spotted leftover fabric from my Super Tote. At that point all the clean up ideas were completely abandoned and I suddenly had to make a new Lola pouch.

I made a smaller size of the pouch - it's perfect for pencils as well as many other sewing supplies. It also fits my rotary cutters nicely.

Once again I went with striped binding around the zipper as I simply can't resist striped bindings. I might have a problem here :). But really, how can I possibly resist this gorgeous contrast of bright magenta zipper and black and white striped binding ???

I even added a little leather zipper pull which is such a lovely finishing touch for any pouch or bag. I just need to remember to add these little details more often.

All in all, this super quick pouch was a lovely distraction from what I should really be doing and now that it's all finished I'm back to that original clean up plan :(. 

Hope your weekend is off to a good start as well. Svetlana

Oh, by the way, Etsy has finally gotten on board with all that VAT mess so I re-opened my esty store and my pdf patterns are available for purchase worldwide. (insert happy dance here)
