Finish it up Friday 3/15/2013

Ssshh, I actually finished this last week.  I had no finishes this week to share and I never shared this so I thought I would.  This is the result of a FREE craftsy class.  That's right folks, free.  I loved that class.  Its one of their mini classes and honestly I have made three of these pouches.  I am down to 45 mins a pouch.  It is taught by Kristin Link of Sew Mama Sew.  Here's the link.

My daughter stole one of them for her hand sewing items.  (so proud!)  She's only 8.  She does hand embroidery that is a bit unstructured at the moment but very cute.  I have taught her how to knot and thread her needle but nothing else really.  I figured that could wait until she gets used to the needle a bit more.  Right now she uses a variation of the running stitch.

This pouch was my favorite.  I got this fabric at my LQS in a fat quarter.  I am not sure of the line but I love it.  I am going to see if they have anymore when I go back this Saturday.  I am pretty sure I can get at least three of these bags out of 2 fat quarters.  One for the lining and one for the outside.

I use it to store my Hexi's!

Linking up to Crazy Mom Quilts for Finish it up Friday.


  1. Very cute! I also had a small project finish this week!


  2. This is soooo pretty. A gorgeous finish :)

  3. Oh, I want to make one of those right.this.minute! So cute!

  4. I have seen lots of these pouches on the web, but usually pass them by. THEN I saw you were storing your Hexies in it. I really need a travel pouch for my portable projects, thanks for some inspiration. Great to see your finish.

    1. What is great about this pouch is the location of the zipper. I can set it on my desk or lap and leave it open and nothing falls out. It also makes it easier to find things in there.

  5. What a great idea for zipper placement!! I NEED one (maybe 20!) of these, for sure. Thanks for sharing. =D


  6. Very cute project. this looks like a great end of year teacher gift too :-)
