Sew more triangle zippered pouch

















While many of you are in toasty sweaters, drinking cozy tea, baking yummy any pumpkin related pastries, making yummy chicken noodle soup, and delicious hot cheesy ham sandwiches in the cooler days. S and I are starting feeling "cool" here! It gets up to 90's during the day/ sometimes in the 80's, but surely the sun isn't that mean and harsh. I'd say calmer and welcome to shine through most of the days. We miss all the good Fall season activities! Apple pies are impossible to find, the hearty homemade kind here, with extra butter on the crust and extra apple slices and top with a scoop of ice cream under cozy and pretty quilts?  And we'll miss the pumpkin patch this year.. oh..  the roasted pumpkin seeds, anyone is making them? I am feeling a bit green thinking all these Fall thingy here... 

The week has been productive. I was able to finish a second {triangle zippered pouch} yesterday. The new zippered pouch is a little smaller, but taller than the last one. The patchwork is finished 1"x1" and hand-quilted through out the patchwork piece. I made the larger width for the binding. Since I was thinking Fall all the time the {chestnut charm} is perfect for the fit.

For this zippered pouch, I have done two things differently from the tutorial. The first one is the side binding that I used the quilting binding corner fold for it, so the corners are more square, but I like both rounded and squared. I though I'd give it a try. The second one is the zipper tag. I used different fabric, just to bring the contrast out from the binding fabric. It turns out perfect! Both of them are DS fabric!!

There are many small scrappy log cabin blocks finished this week !! They are great start for a quilt that I am thinking. It gets excited about all the new projects that's ahead of us...  S is making lots paper folding lately and they are miniature hearts and boats.

Thank you for sharing your {triangle zippered pouch} with me. I have seen some on IG and Flickr lately. They are all looking so pretty and hope you have had great time making them!  I am onto my sister's today and hope to finish over the weekending.  Few more patchwork patching and cutting fabric before I head out this space for a little while.

note: For next few weeks, {sewingshop} and {inch mark shop} will be closed! I'll ship any of your orders  that made on or before October 1st right away, would be September 30th in North America time. At this moment, I don't know when I will reopen the shops. This space will be quiet for a little while.. until then { happy sewing}...

  1. It's lovely Chase. I especially like the lining. Autumn hasn't really kicked in completely here yet, although it is cooler, darker and damper. Once the clocks go back it will really start feeling autumnal. Hope you both have a good weekend.

  6. Such a pretty pouch! I love the tiny patchwork you make :) I always feel the same way about fall- southern arizona stays in the 90s into October and even then, it was almost 80 degrees last Thanksgiving! But we pretend. We still go to pumpkin patches and eat apple pie... We just sweat while we do it ;) but maybe this is an opportunity to explore new fall traditions!

  10. It's so lovely Chase! The dark binding adds such a nice contrast to the patchwork, really pops the whole piece. Biggest love for your print choices, especially the brown with white daisies for the sides! xx
