Pouch Practice


I had never made a glue-in metal frame pouch and I knew I wanted to make one for my Pretty {little} Pouch Swap--so, of course, I had to make a practice pouch!  I made my own template for my 8x3 metal frame.  You can download my template HERE!!!  I used the tutorial found here.  The only thing I did differently was to use fusible fleece on my exterior and light-weight woven interfacing on my interior.  Oh, and I got my frames and glue here.  I used an old Anna Maria Horner Garden Party fabric for the outside and a Little Folks Dobby stripe voile for the inside.  I have something a bit more elaborate planned for my partner, but, for a first attempt, I'm happy with how this came out!


In other news, I did finish my next MBS project!  Unfortunately, I can't share it yet!  I love it so much more than my first version!  I guess that's all for now, I need to get back to my next pouch.  I'll leave you with a picture of my cute babies, who aren't so little any more!
