Sew Sunday: Pouches


Welcome to the awesome part of my shopping ban. I'll be doing updates on little things I create with my sewing machine. "Sew Sunday" will likely be an infrequent update here as I complete personal sewing projects.

I got my first real project (a tote) all cut out last night. I had some leftover scraps and wanted to practice some. So, I free hand cut some fun shapes and made these little button-up pouches. A Roman black and white geometric motif lined in red with pewter buttons. They're a bit raw, a bit wonky, but I'm ridiculously proud of making something that can be used. I gave the one on the right to my mom. I haven't found a use for the second one yet, but I figure I'll figure it out.

  7. Those are awesome! I'm pretty sure the first thing I ever turned off of a sewing machine would not be nearly so cool. Very neat! Great print too! :)
