PLPS & PAL FINISH!

Frame Pouch Along
{all prior Pouch Along links can be found here}

A two in one finish!  I had intended to post this pouch on Friday to complete our Pouch Along week...but instead I decided why not share it on Sew Modern Monday instead?

PLPS Round 3 Final for my Partner

As my regular readers know I signed up for the Pretty Little Pouch Swap this round and was delighted when I was accepted to join!  If you've read over the last month or then you know I have tried a few different pouch designs with different fabrics and shapes.  While stalking my partner and scrutinizing the description of her pouch request I kept going back and forth about my final design.  But here it is!!!

I ultimately went with the beloved combo of natural linen (Kaufman Essex - amazing stuff!!!) and Echino prints.  I wanted something simple but still unique.  So instead of just going with a flat front I tried playing around with adding in a front pocket.

And I couldn't resist an Echino selvage detail in the back!!!

I still hope to continue adding to and improving the Frame Pouch Along.  So if you are interested in providing your design tips or learning from scratch do join in and visit the Flickr group!

Linking up to Sew Modern Monday.  Check out everyone's modern finishes...

I already told you this, but I think it needs to be said again. I love your pouch and its little pocket! Too bad I wasn't in the swap so I could have a chance at it. :)

Hi Becca! Love, love, love your pouch and what a great idea to add a pocket. Your PAL was so much fun, and maybe someday I'll show you the back of the one I made!!;-)
I still have a bunch of frames to use, so I'll get lots of practice!

So very clever and very cute. Are you selling these?

Pat said...

I love this pouch! I really, really want to make one. I would be tempted if I had a frame. Does the glue hold with use?

Melinda said...

Love it! So cute. You did a great job! I really want to get some of these frames and try one. I love different kinds of bags.

Love the way the bright fabrics contrast with the linen. The pocket is a great idea!

Rebecca, this is adorable!!!! Love the outside pocket! I wanna try out those pouches soon (maybe after christmas). Thank you for all those tips!

The linen, the Echino, the pocket...sigh. How much would I have to pay to bribe the organizer to arrange for you to be my swapper? LOL I just love your little pouch, and I'm really getting inspired to try this. Gotta get my tutorial done for my blog, and then I think I'm good to go! (If you hear cries for help, you'll know I hit a bump in the road! Heehee!)
