I’m heading down to Salt Lake for the Sewing Summit this afternoon and I decided this morning that I needed a cute pouch in which to carry my supplies. After all, who goes to a sewing conference without a handmade item full of sewing supplies? So I sewed up this pouch with fabrics I had on hand.
I didn’t have the time or desire to shop for supplies so this tutorial was the perfect answer to my search for the perfect little pouch. Isn’t it dang cute!!! I only made a couple small changes to the original pattern. I used laminate fabric (by Riley Blake) and instead of the fabric three ring binder tab called for in the pattern, I simply used a piece of canvas strapping that I found in my stash. No, I do not have the grommets on it yet, because I did not have any on hand. I will purchase those later. As for now, I will just be carrying it in my purse anyway.
Here’s a shot of the zipper edge. You can see how nice and flat it lays. Perfect for storing in a binder. And the laminate fabric is especially nice if you are making this for your child’s school supplies as it wipes clean easily.
I forgot to photograph the backside, but it is just a piece of the darker laminate. And, BTW, if you are using laminate fabric, the teflon coated presser feet work marvelously. Have a great sewing weekend. 🙂
