Q3 - pouches + Le Challenge


It is time for Le Challenge! Yesterday I pull out those selvedges again. The theme is era. Those selvedges represents sewing era. Not mine since I got them from a friend :) If I messed up the theme, just blame it on language issue, lol. I'll play dummy and call it misunderstanding.

**update: Le Challenge is taking vacation so the link up for ERA theme will be on Sept 15 if anyone would like to join. I don't even have to play dummy, lol.


It is modified version of Open Wide Zippered pouch. The exterior is made out of one piece so there is no seam at the bottom.


Since I wanted to tick something of my FAL Q3 list as well I finished two more pouches.


You can see the exterior is in one piece as well. One is quilted with orange peels and the brown one is just simple straight lines.


This is my current fav pattern for pouches. This simple patchwork style is also great for scraps. There are 84 pcs of 2.5" squares.


It would be perfect for QAYG technique or FMQ practice panels. There are many options.

  2. I do not save my selvages at all, so I am always amazed at how beautiful work with them turns out (although I see you got your selvages from a friend!). As always, lovely work and detail and you are the queen of coordinating zippers!

  3. Oooh love! Great idea for the selvages (I might need to do that for some gifts for sewists). I hoard selvages like you wouldn't believe.

  6. Those are so cute! Love the quilting, and great use of selvages! I made a selvage bag similar to that about a month ago for a swap...not sure how well it went over, but I figured what quilter wouldn't like it?!

  14. wonderful pouches, and a great idea for selvedges. I am using some for a bee square to make a spiders web effect this month. I have not started my challenge yet, am thinking cushion again

  20. I liked seeing the bottom of your pouches. I've been wanting to make some pouches out of one piece, not two, but for some reason, I wondered how it'd look with the corners boxed. I'm not sure why I hesitated - yours look perfect, and it shouldn't make any difference. Anyway, lovely pouches!!
