I'm being a bit naughty today. I had promised Yvette, my partner in the Sweet Pouch Swap, that I'd keep the finished item as a surprise... but...
I'm really sorry but I couldn't resist. I am ridiculously stoked about this finish and just couldn't keep my mouth shut. I know, I know, you're not supposed to be so chuffed with your own work but, as I've been in a major slump of late, this has been a lovely breath of fresh air.
Yvette had stated that she liked bright, happy colours; linen and birds so I ran with it. I hope this piece of rainbow-y goodness makes her smile.
For the first time, I used Noodlehead's tutorial for the Open Wide Zippered Pouch - and I love it. The whole thing came together quickly and easily and the super spacious opening is perfect. I will be making more of these.
I found the lining fabric just yesterday when I ducked in to grab a zip and I just couldn't go past those bright jellybeans. The colours match perfectly.
Finishing at 11" x 8.5" this little beauty is now stuffed with sweet treats and ready for it's trip all the way to Tennessee.
I hope you like it Yvette!
