Look at that pretty baby. Mwah!
Delicious wouldn't you agree?
You know when you make something that just gives you an adrenaline rush just because it is so freaking adorable and perfect??? AGH! Well, that is how I feel about this pouch!
You may recall the adorable Kokka Trefle fabric from this post. I finally decided to pair it with my favorite Ta Dot fabric, a bit of Amy Butler Soul Blossom for some ooh la laa, and DS Quilts for lining.
I like big butts. ;)
I used the extra bits to make a mini pouch for needles, thread, and embroidery scissors. And of course no sewing kit would be complete without a pin cushion!
There are many awesome sewing kits like this and this. But, although they are adorable, neat, and organized I knew that type of design spells DISASTER for me. I have to be able to throw, literally throw, my sewing stuff together quickly while keeping it safe from little hands and not losing bits and bobs in a larger tote.
This pouch is roughly 11"w x 12"h x 5"d
At first I thought, crap, I made it too deep. That was until I printed out my Wiksten pdf pattern to cut during a long car ride. (Which I can finally use = I am back to my pre-pregnancy size!) It was then that I realized damn, happy coincidence or what? This pouch is big enough to carry a printed pattern to prep for cutting and taping! It also perfectly carries my magazines too. Heh heh. How perfect daaaahling!
I am so stoked about this pouch that I am preparing a quick pattern which I will post for free next week. Hope you'll come back to grab it!
