a few pouches

January 13, 2012

I made a little gift for a friend of mine that loves to travel.  She is one of those women that is always perfectly dressed, has all her make-up on and has beautiful jewelry to match each outfit.  Essentially, the opposite of me!  :)

I thought she might enjoy a few bags to keep all of her goodies organized on her little jaunts.


The little zippered pouch was made using the slouchy make-up bag pattern by the fantastic Florence of Flossie Teacakes.  I adore everything Florence makes, she has such effortless style and I'm sure she sounds so awesome with her cute British accent!  :)


I love the curved top, it's different from any other zippered bag pattern that I have (and I have lots!).


I love how it stays open on it's own!  It makes it so much easier to get out your make-up.

I also made two of Jeni's lined drawstring bags.  I made the two smallest sizes and they are SO cute!!!

yes, I realize you can see the lining through the bag, ugh!


The tiny one is my favorite, just because it's so itty bitty!  :)  Just to show you how small it is, here is a pic of it on top of a charm pack.  It's perfect for rings or earrings.
I used chevron twill tape for the ties instead of making fabric ones, I think it looks really cute and it goes so well with the Ruby fabrics.  I will make the fabric ties next time though just for a change.  :)


What are you guys working on???

  2. I don't know HOW many times I have admired those drawstring bags on other people's blogs and I still haven't made any myself. Needs to move up on the to-do list, I think! They are adorable. I never would have noticed the lining was showing through except that you pointed it out. :) Love the chevron-y ribbon.

    Agreed about Flossie Teacakes patterns. All so cute. I love her stuffie sleeping bag pattern.

    I am working on a charm quilt with Chrysalis by Moda, and also am going to be joining the Sparkle QAL.

  11. I love the pouches! I didn't realize how tiny the little one was until seeing the pic with the charm pack - too cute! And I just love the Ruby fabric. I'm working on many things since I'm getting ready for my first craft fair - lots of wristlets and totes and more.
