a bit more qayg

Clearly making just one qayg scrappy pouch was not enough :).

So last night I whipped up this little pouch and pincushion set.

Don't you just love how a few scraps of fabric and batting can be turned into such interesting panels in almost no time at all? Especially when you work on a small scale, like I did.

I turned the two larger panels into a simple pouch, making the pattern up as I went. I used a 6" long metal zipper and adjusted all the measurements accordingly. And, since I didn't want to go with the usual rectangular pouch shape, I rounded the corners and cut out small darts to give it a bit more depth.

Have you tried qayg before? I hope you give it a go, it's great fun.
I have a free tutorial on how to make these panels here, and how to turn them into pouches here

Wishing you all a happy and creative weekend. Svetlana


  1. I love all your little quilt as you go panels! I also think they make GREAT pouches. (of course your cutie pie little pincushion caught my eye, too!) great finishes!

    thanks for linking up to finish it up Friday! have a great weekend!

  2. Super stylish and very useful - and all from scraps! Brilliant - colours are just perfect.

  3. Sweet pouch and pincushion! I have so many scraps I should just keep batting squares by my machine and quilt up the scraps as I sew on other projects. LOL Happy Friday!

  4. Love the pouches! Going to make a few! thanks for the tutorial. Looks great!

  5. These are wonderful applications of QAYG. Love your colour and fabric choices!

  6. I really should give my scraps some more love ... this little set is lovely and the perfect little gift :)

  7. Love the QAYG and use of the scaps! And I love the shape of the pouch! I need to sit down and whip up something like this with a lovely pile of your fabric I won!!
