Would make a simple project amazing....
But it's even more awesome on a more complex project!
I got carried away and finished the pouch! This pouch was hugely inspired by this one here, which was made by Marci / Marci Girl Designs. I've had my eye on that pouch since she made it for the Pretty Little Pouch Swap!! I finally broke down and attempted it... and without trying (quite by mistake) mine turned out about half the size of hers!
I used some indigo bella solid, and some of that pink running stitch that I bought for no reason. For the fluted part I used 805 Wonder Under to fuse a layer of the indigo with the pink - then traced the bottom of a kid's cup to make my circles (about a 2" diameter). I should have made those circles bigger - that's why my pouch turned out smaller. Mine finishes at about 4 1/4" x 5 1/2" with an 11" loop for the handle.
I really like the way this pouch turned out - the punch from that neon thread is great! I found that neon thread at Michael's by the way - in their 1/2 isle of sewing related stuff.
This one is going to be mine. I'm calling dibs even though my sister and cousins will want it. Too bad. :) For one, I'm not sure how well the raw edges of the circles will hold up to wear! There may be more of these in the future - but probably not because it was quite a bit more work and I prefer my pouches to be quick!
