Fiber Friday

I have been looking for small projects that will make use of my fabric stash. Yesterday I played around with this pouch pattern. My first try had a wonky zipper, my fault because I didn’t trust the pattern and used a too long zipper. On round two, I followed the directions and was much happier. The words are a small fabric sticker that has been waiting for just the right project. The fabrics and zippers are from my abundant stash.

I ordered some nicer zippers and hope to make these pouches for my quilt retreat friends. I have plenty of stash and interfacing – just need a free afternoon to get them sewn up.

I picked up The River at the library this week and it is such a good read. With just one day of reading I am almost at the halfway point. i need to figure out where I put my summer book bingo card because I know this one will fill a spot.

Happy Friday – hello weekend!

  1. Smart idea to use your stash to make gifts for friends…and as ‘quilter,’ I know these pouches will be “muchly appreciated!” Stitch on!

  2. That is a cute little pouch. Knitters could use it for a notions bag. I have also been sewing project bags. I made one that looked pretty good but was too small for a sock project and too big for a notions pouch. I did learn a thing or two about installing a zipper so I feel like it is a win. I’m using fabrics from the never ending fat quarter stash. Enjoy your sewing.
