Le Challenge - Charity


Le Challenge is one of my fav linky. I like to check how other interprets the same theme. I struggled a bit with this month though - Charity.

Le Challenge

I took part in local charity which gather together pouches for elderly women in hospital. It is an ongoing project so I though about making some pouches. Then I thought about my friend who organized some charity project as well. Maybe I should make some gift for her.  Either way I ended up with pouch.


The front is inspired by free hand curves pillow cover by Red Pepper Quilts. You can find the tutorial here. I tried some curves before but not with such dense quilting. Love it!



It is once again Open Wide Zippered pouch by Noodlehead. The handle is made out of zipper.


It is made out of scraps which is always great.


Maybe you noticed my quilt over @ Sew Mama Sew. Yay! I'm excited that Jessica asked me to participate in the series called My favorite quilt. You can join in the fun by sharing your fav quilt too. You'll find linky at every post of this series.

  8. You always come up with such fantastic design ideas, Vera - I wouldn't be surprised if eventually you got into something like designing patterns for for sewing (bags? quilts? pillows?) - maybe with the end result of having patterns published or having a book published (like Amy Morinaka) - you are one TALENTED lady!!!
