Winter 2015 Edition

//Welcome to Winter 2015 Edition//

With this winter edition each patchwork pouch added on a sweet zipper charm. 
It really gives each patchwork piece a more unique and sweet look. 
Come join me with the reviews 

This is such a roomy pouch that gives so much space inside. The darts sewing at the bottom of the pouch provide the pouch extra width and great for items such as sewing tools, pens, even a pair of medium size scissors.  To make it zakka style look I have simply added 100% linen at the bottom to give extra gentle look! 

**Also always, I have loved and enjoyed play the front the back of each pouch. This pouch is such a cheerful one! Some of the prints are hard to find and no more in my own stash! It is always pleasure to let each print shines on its own! 

**Not to mention the little zipper charm pull! They are quiet one of a kind to be honest! I love this tea pot and it is quiet solid to hold on! The zipper charm is made out from the brass material and imported. 

Do you know sometimes, sewing can be also telling a bit of stories? I think you probably have find that a lot around here! As I found these cute mousey prints, that county and city mouse story pop in my head right away!  I think if I were the author, I'd rewrite that story! With a twist... um something more like they go shopping in the fabric store then the fabric owner has a lovely kitty... 

** I couldn't help to add this kitty zipper charm to the pouch! I though it was a perfect one to go with! This pouch is made up mostly linen and linen/cotton blended prints! Very zakka style look and less contrast in colors. It is almost organic look and simplify the pouch outlook! 

Pink, red, white, cream, floral. It always remind of some sweet people. Indeed, these colors are pastel in person! Adding a bit of linen gives some extra hand texture to it! I though of adding the little cherry charm to the zipper, but it seems like the magic key to the pouch is more ideal!

A pouch that to take during the trip? I do that for us! Each of us gets a pouch that holds the passport, pens, little things, likely little cash for S in case we lost each other!

** During our summer trip, I have found these sweet retro look daisy prints. They are the kind of fabric that love in first sight.  Although it is winter at this moment, but so much about this pouch that comes with lots good summer days, so adding this cute charm house is quiet perfect!

A bit patchwork and a bit zakka style linen! I am giving this pouch a newish outlook! It definitely is a less contrast and lesson vibrate in colors. Quiet a simple approach; sweet and elegant! 

 ** Lining prints are so important as the outer pouch! As a maker, I always spend time to go through my stash and find the right print for it! It is nice to have the pouch corresponded inside out all together!

A pair of good scissors is important to all the sewers, patchworks, quilter, crafters! Not sure how about you, but the good scissors around here gets hand written  **// for fabric only//. I really love how this tiny brass scissors gets to be add up with pouch. This pouch has included some vibrate, fresh, and some retro prints! 

This pouch has added a bit of solid prints to gives a bit unique patchwork look. I enjoy the contrast sewing between prints and solid. This pouch also uses more geometrical shapes prints than the other. it might be a coincident as the patchwork making.  Little Sue charm pull is perfect! I love all the Sue and Billy stories! Have you read one? 

A fruity patchwork piece pouch for a little cherry charm pull.  There's quiet a bit of fruity prints use in this pouch. Corresponded with gingham prints on the other side of the pouch and some light floral prints on this side. 

Last, but not least! Miss Jonna pouch used lots contrast prints; big scale/small scale, dark/light, cool/warm prints. When the patchwork pieces put together, it reminded me the music piece called Jonna, the cat! It is the very first two pages piano piece S played when she was littler.  This pouch is playful in the colors and was patched with some really small pieces like 0.75"x0.5".
