Snow Day, Sew Day
I love this new pouch I made the other day. It's called the Lola Pouch by Sotak Handmade . It is the perfect size for all kinds of things. I made the larger one but there is a smaller one as well. I am hoping to make another one to store things for an upcoming retreat.
The one tip I will give you is, it is optional to quilt the outside fabric using a fusible fleece. Do it for a nice sturdy pouch that stands up well.
The other thing I like is that it opens real wide! Easy to get things in and out.
The inside is made with a vintage "art" fabric that is so cute!
The pattern was very easy and well written with good instructions. The zipper is nice the way it sits down within the binding. I love her examples too! I think these would make great gifts.
Right now I have stored my templates and paper pieces for the La Passacaglia quilt in my new pouch. A couple of friends and I have decided to take on this very, very long term project. I was planning on showing the ladies at our guild this tomorrow for our Member Demo day. Snow if forecasted so that may not happen. This is very uncharted waters for me as they are sewn together not as I thought.....it will teach me yet another new skill.
I do love those little lobsters though......
