Hi, and welcome to my blog. Today, I want to share with you a simple project or 3. Have been busily sewing away the time, and finished with these quick projects.
Firstly, the Box Pouch.
After choosing the fabric, I sewed 2 1/2 ” strips together from my stash, added batting and backing fabric, top stitched, and squaring off a rectangle shape, (according to the pattern). Then it was time to sew it together.
The Box Pouch.
The fabric is called Chirpy Lola, designed by Rosaline Quinlin, from Ella Blue fabrics. I bought this fabric in a 2 1/2″ wide fabric log a while ago, and made an Ahoy the Sails table topper with it. There had been quite a lot of fabric left over.
These Box Pouches, make great gifts, as they are quick and easy to sew. This pattern came from pinkxstitches.blogspot.com.au.
Next, the Sack (or Small Basket).
Next, I found this beautiful Sack pattern from jillianinitaly.com. This one took me about 1 hour to select the fabric, cut, stitch, sew up the seams and make 3 sacks. I like that they are reversible, and easy to wash. The sack needed batting between the inner, and outer layers, just to help keep it sturdy. It was also easy to adjust the measurements to make a larger or smaller sack. Will definitely make this one again.
……. and finally, the Zip-Up Case.
These cases were a bit more fiddly, since, I decided to add a clear front to one of the cases. It took a little more than an hour to select fabric, cut, and stitch together. This case pattern came from haberdasheryfun.com.
