I'm excited each Spring when the tree in our backyard gets covered in pink blooms. This year, it seems much later to finally see everything greening up. Makes me appreciate it all the more.
Yay for Spring!
|Part of the new look for this pouch included adding quilting - in 12wt cotton.|
|9-patch blocks in quilting cotton paired with a rough weave linen form the main body of the pouch.|
|Dense quilting for the gussets in 12wt cotton thread add interest to the sides.|
|Love interior pockets and the chance to use zippers from my thrifting stash.|
|The binding is sewn to encase all raw edges and the zipper tape. A loop is formed at one end of the zipper for ease in opening the pouch and a fabric tab encloses the opposite end of the zipper for a clean finish.|
|"Teal Me True" bundle I put together from fabrics at Mad About Patchwork.|
