It figures that on the last night of the challenge I would make my favorite pouch all week!
I set out to make something just for me - I guess I was feeling a little down because I've made all these awesome pouches, yet I'll be giving them all away at Christmas this year. SO, of course I needed one just for me.
I decided that it should be a pencil pouch since I don't have one, and because then I could use it every day in my purse! I initially thought of this tutorial, but it makes an unlined pouch. Then I thought about the way these were constructed, and knew that the lining part would work just the same (essentially it is the same, without boxing the bottom two corners). Then I added a bit of this (I sure love my "purses" pinterest board - pouch inspiration galore!). Finally I added this as the color inspiration! (yes, I essentially stalked my flickr account like I would for any swap partner!
I love the results! I wasn't quite on spot with my colors - but I was working with what was handy - and these hexies were already basted and joined into a rainbow strip. I'm love love loving the pull tab - I used two layers of Pellon 809 Decor Bond and Pellon 805 Wonder Under.
Finally, a little bit of pretty pouchiness for me!
