|open wide zippered pouch tutorial from noodlehead || fabric from bari j's splendor 1920|
my mom is also my favorite secret weapon. she's got an eye like a hawk. she lovingly, painstakingly and very carefully edits and proofs all of my tutorials and patterns. she never misses a thing. i love that i always have her and my dad to send my pdf's to for a thorough and intense proofing. it's so fun to have them be a part of my wee business.
when i had decided to make my mom a new pouch i knew i wanted to try a new style of zippered pouch instead of the basic rectangle one that i usually make. i remembered my friend anna from noodlehead's free "open wide zippered pouch" tutorial. this pouch is soooo fun to make! with 3 sizes available i'm dying to make myself a trio of pouches! i have so many projects on the go i'm still running out of pouches/bags/totes...lol. which in turn means i create more pouches, which means more projects being made. crazytown i tell ya. somebody stop me!
my mom loves teals and blues. any shade and she'll take it - anywhere. so when it came time to choose my fabric i went straight to bari j's line - splendor 1920 for art gallery fabrics i knew my mom would swoon over it just like i did. i chose "english garden serene" as the outer print and then did the lining in one of my fave's "tea delight jam". if you're a fan of bari's work check out her newest line - bijoux. i have another pressie i just made for someone out of it and the line is just gorgeous!
i hope my mom enjoys her pouch :) i wouldn't sew a zipper for just anyone..wink wink. to my mom: you are amazing. i love you very much and could never make you enough goodies to show you how much i appreciate everything you have done for me and my family and how much you mean to me.
