Morning everyone, I'm popping in before the school run to share the pouch I made for Jennie in the latest round of the Sweet Pouch Swap, which has been coordinated by the gorgeous Ros.
I did a little stalking of Jennie's blog and instagram, and found she has three beautiful children, so I made a pouch with a little porthole for each of them - using the porthole how-to in Lu Summers' excellent Quilt Improv book.
It's only right this minute, in uploading the pics, that I've realised I forgot to make a little tab for the end of the zipper! Oh good grief, look at that awful long end-y bit of the zipper dangling down! I'm so sorry Jennie, I can't even believe I didn't notice that before ... life's been a little chaotic these last few weeks since getting home from the US and getting sorted for school and catching up on life ... but evenstill ... gah!
Are you loving all the treats, there are so many of our favourites! - Natural Confectionary Company lollies, Cadbury creme eggs, Marvellous Creations (my girls' favourites!), mini eggs and Furry Friends. And I made a couple of quick trips to Lone Pine Koala Sanctuary for some little koala-y goodies for Jennie's children.
I added the babushka doll tab, as I noticed Jennie had recently-ish made a gorgeous big churn dash quilt, using lots of babushka doll fabric ... oh the things you notice with a bit of blog stalking!
The gorgeous fabric on the back is from a little swap with the lovely Frances from Miss Matatabi. And the lining fabrics are the fab PamKittyMorning and Lu Summers' Summersville (link to Lu's blog above).
The pouch + goodies are on their way to the USA - I was a little late in posting them, but they should hopefully arrive in the next week or so. I love the Sweet Pouch Swap, it's a fun thing to be part of, I've met some really great sewing buddies through it, and it's really well coordinated by Ros and Alyce (they take it in turns).
Hope you have a happy Wednesday! 'til next time, xoxo cat
