Sweet Pouch Swap

First of all I am so sorry Elizabeth for not posting the gorgeous pouch you made for me sooner. I took an Instagram picture of it at the hair salon the day after I received it and planned on blogging about it then, but I just forgot. I think the stress of getting my own pouch done for my partner was wearing on me.

Here is the lovely pouch I received from Elizabeth at Woozy Quilts.

Both sides are different, one has an aqua (my favorite color) wonky star. I love the fussy cut tea pot!

And the other has this amazing rainbow twisted fabric that I just love. 

And of course since the theme of this swap was sweets, it was stuffed with yummy candy, yummy fabric, and the awesome Pac-Man band aids. And the pouch was lined with this adorable blender fabric, how perfect!

Thank you Elizabeth for my amazing pouch!

And here is the pouch I made for my partner. All I had to go on from her was she liked aqua/sea foam green and chevrons. I hope she likes the pouch! I had fun making my first pouch! 

I used Elizabeth Hartman's Perfect Zip pattern, style C, the large size. I pieced the tiny HSTs to make the 6.5 inch patchwork centerpiece on both sides. I paired it with some Osnaburg for a linen like look, and I love how soft the Osnaburg fabric is. I did simply quilting on the sides, just straight line quilted about an inch apart. And although the HSTs were a pain, this almost stayed home with me, because I loved it so much. The only thing I would change in the future is the jump ring. I could not find split rings at my craft store or LQS so I had to raid my key drawer and steal the ring off one of my keys. I can't wait until the new Joann's opens in March, less than 5 minutes from my house!

Thanks Ros of Sew Delicious for organizing this swap! I had a blast and will definitely consider joining again! I think I may have a new love of pouches now that I am over my fear of zippers!

Both pouches are adorable Kelly, good job on the patchwork chevron.

I can't wait for that Jo-Ann's to open either, it's less then 5 min. from our guild meetings.

Kelly, this turned out great! I think I'm catching the pouch-bug, too. Once you conquer a few zippers, the sky's the limit, you know? :)

Awesome pouches! You have a lot of patience to piece all those tiny hst's.

Amazing Kelly! That piecing is so perfect! I love it and I'm sure your partner will love it too. Thank you so much for being part of the swap :)

I also used Elizabeth Hartman bag book. It is sooo good. I absolutely love the chevron pouch you made. Now I have something new to make my scraps into. I am going to have to make one, it is so gorgeous. I can't wait for mine to arrive from my secret person
