When I first started chatting with the lovely Susan Beal, president of the Portland Modern Quilt Guild, we talked about having a swap between our two guilds to build a connection between modern quilt guilds in the Pacific Northwest. The Portland MQG-Vancouver MQG Pouch Swap is the result and here's the pouch I'm sending off to Portland. It's my first ever pouch and I'm very happy with how it turned out. I used some of my precious apples and pears print for the exterior based on my partner's colour preferences (actually, since she's American, she probably has color preferences without the u, doesn't she?).
Inside, I used a Lizzy House stripe for the lining and zipper tabs. I followed the Easy Peasy Zippered Pouch Tutorial by Make it Perfect since Heather had recommended it at the VMQG meeting.
The finished pouch measured 7 3/4" wide by 5 1/2" tall. I was able to fit in a couple small goodies for my partner. Now that I've given this pouch away, my daughter wants me to make one for her! She's already chosen the fabrics and even a few buttons for good measure. I'll be sure to share when it's done!
