Pretty {Little} Pouch

Posted on July 28th, by Amy in finished project. 24 comments

This is the big girl pouch made in the same manner, as the bitty pouch Emmalie and I made yesterday.  I’m participating in the Pretty {Little} Pouch Swap on flickr, and really loving all the pouches that are popping up in the group!  I made this one with my partner in mind, and I’m really hoping that she loves it.

 I had a lot of fun putting it together and adding the details by hand.  I spent an evening working on both sides of the pouch, this is the front, and the back is below.

Now I just need to find a few goodies to add to it!  I gave it a little gusset so that it stands up, and so that there’s more room for pretty things inside!

A few specs:

Fabric – Crossweaves, and Chocolate Lollipop

Zipper – 10″ brown (purchased here)

with Fusible Fleece interfacing.

I’m off to find something else to put a zipper in!  not really though – haha

  1. Love it! Wish I were your partner – chocolate lollipop is my all-time favorite collection! I love the different patchwork stripes you put across the front. And I love the sweet handstitching details.

  2. Your embroidered circles are perfect,mine are so, so,but don’t you love hand embroidery?!! Such a cute pouch indeed—LOVE this.

  3. Really cute! I was just thinking this morning about making a little pouch for my niece who is starting school in the fall. Definitely some inspiration here!

  4. When you do the hand stitching do you go through all the layers? I’ve never do it before but have a project that I think it would be great on!

  5. It’s great! THe handstitching is such a nice personal touch…sure to make the recipient very happy. Oh, I just got a little bundle of colorful zippers from zipit…love them and her customer service is wonderful! Smiles~beth
