A couple months ago when Elaine and I had just started planning the Happy Little Pouch Hop we were feeling pretty confident and decided to challenge each other... We challenged each other to make one pouch for each weekday of the pouch hop!
So, provided that we manage to actually make a pouch a day - you may be seeing these "Challenge" posts scattered throughout the next two weeks.
On day one (yesterday) I worked on a "Noodlehead: Open Wide Zippered Pouch." This is the first time I've used the Open Wide tutorial and it was pretty great. I'm thankful for the cutting directions for several sizes (mine is medium sized), as well as the optional cutting directions for the color blocked look. It took the guesswork out of it!
The pouch took me about an hour to make which isn't too bad. I managed to sneak it in while my dear husband took the kid with him to the grocery store! :)
I definitely see more of these in my future! Also, there's pouch fever going on here - as Elaine and I were talking about these Open Wide pouches on Facebook, my CMQG president Donna dropped everything to make one too! I hope these posts make you feel that way too! (I'll share the link to Donna's as soon as she blogs it!)
I also started working on my Tuesday Challenge yesterday. I knew I'd be pretty busy considering how challenging the frame pouch is. You'll have to stick around to see if I get it finished by the end of the night!
I hope you're all enjoying the blog hop - don't forget to post your finished pouches to this week's flickr group discussion for a chance to win our weekly prizes!
