MM - pouches



Last Monday I said I would like to make tutorial for all those one exterior piece pouches I recently made. I published it yesterday and you can find it here.

I was wondering if I can make one of those with vinyl. So I tried it right away. Please meet the almost invisible pouch :)


I heard some people sort Lego by color. We don't really sort. We have everything in huge Ikea box which fits underneath the couch but those would look cool. Anyway this is gift and we are not keeping it.


Not bad for a trial.


Last night I made some progress with leather embellishment. The inspiration comes from this pouch. I previously made it in grey and you can spot those in my blog header.



You only need to make sure you fold all those circles the same way. Otherwise it doesn't look good.


On Friday I forgot to link up with Paper Piecing Party. Here is my one and only flake (No.2). It'll become cushion. I'm just trying to decide if I want to keep the hexagon shape or make it square. You can find new pattern - flake No.5 here. All of them are really pretty and I can see different sizes of those placed randomly on quilt top but paper piecing is just not my thing. I really like the blue background others are using even though blue is not my color and you hardly find any in my stash. Are you doing the Snowalong?


Linking up all over the place:

  1. The nearly invisible pouch looks great, Vera - the green legos match your zipper so well. :) The leather embellishment is so fancy, and I look forward to seeing the final pouch. I am just not really a winter / Christmasy kind of person, but the snowflakes are really pretty. Paper piecing might not be your thing, but the block is so crisp and neat!

  3. Invisible Lego pouch!? Cool! My Lego is also in an Ikea box, unsorted.
    I am glad I bought the leather scraps the other day. Between you and Hillary (Entropy Always Wins), I am sure to get lots of inspiration.

  5. I LOVE that vinyl bag! I've seen small flat ones in vinyl but doing it as a boxed bottom bag with a fun coloured zipper is just plain CUTE :) Who sorts Lego by colour - can you imagine how much time that would take out of your day? I was always happy if the darn things were corralled somewhere (hopefully a box, but not always, LOL) where I couldn't step on them! ;)

  6. You've been busy! I can't wait to see what the petals turn into. That clear bag is awesome! And I bet dead useful too!

  7. I'm so in love with the leaher embellishment, seriously that is so neat! Can you sew over the two (three?) layers of leather with your home sewing machine?

  8. That vinyl pouch is super cute, Vera! Your leather work is incredible. This is going to be another pouch? Love your snowflake, but I feel the same way about paper piecing. It's just not for me either.

  9. Leather embellishment looks really good! I have a love/hate relationship with paper piecing - hate the doing, love the result!

  10. Oh boy your leather piece is looking so cool - makes me want to have a go to. What is it going to be when it's done?

  12. Since making a couple of Noddlehead Road Trip Cases, I've been experimenting with vinyl too. But I don't know that I''m brave enough to make an entire pouch. I've been doing a fabric front with a vinyl back... did you find that the two layers of vinyl stuck under your presser foot?

  13. Your nearly invisible pouch is great! I've never worked with vinyl, but perhaps I should give it some thought. Your snowflake came out beautifully, despite paper pieceing not being your favourite technique :) Thanks for giving it a try and for linking up.
