So no wonder that I ended up making a small linen zippered pouch. Perfect for bits and pieces, stationary or sewing supplies or maybe coins or cards. I really like how the tiny stitches add to the texture of this pouch.
I left the back plain, just a small label - a patch of cross-stitch linen with raw edges, some cotton and a piece of ribbon. I really enjoy these quick and easy makes.
The next pouch I made was to use this little flying geese block that I messed up. The colours were supposed to be in a different order. I did not realise the mistake I made until I took a photo for Instagram. I could not bring myself to up-pick all the seams, it was much easier to make a new block again. But this little cutie? Well, I think this quilted pouch is a perfect place for it.
I cannot wait to show you what I am making with all these flying geese in pretty colours. I hope it turns out as good as I see it in my head. He he... I have one more messed up block, in blue shades, that I am going to try saving too instead of tossing it away.
I used green and yellow quilting cotton threads for this little pouch. It was a pleasure to enjoy the peaceful process of hand quilting. I treated myself with a small gift recently - a few sets of Tulip Hiroshima Needles. They are very sharp and smoothly pass through fabric, they are difficult to bend or break. Oh, how many needles have I bent and broken!
I enjoy saving the tiniest of fabric scraps. Not only because I feel sorry to throw away precious pieces of pretty fabrics, but because making something useful and nice with small pieces gives me an even bigger sense of achievement and satisfaction. Have a wonderful weekend! Larisa xox
