A Piece of Me Pouch...

Last week, Lucy who blogs at Charm About You released a new pattern: A Piece of Me Pouch.  I read about it on Saturday (I do all my blog reading on Saturday morning while drinking my coffee) and right away purchased a copy of it.


We were celebrating my step-daughter's birthday on Sunday so I decided this little pouch would be the perfect gift for her.  Her favourite colour is purple so I pulled out two purple fat quarters and got to work!

This was a super easy and fun make!

I picked a fun stripe for the binding to finish off the pouch and love how it looks.  The pattern says to hand sew the binding to the back but I'm not a huge fan of hand sewing so I tried to sew it on by machine. I basically used the same method I use for my quilts.


It didn't turn quite as nice as I thought it would but it definitely not so bad that it needed to be unpicked!

My step-daughter loved the pouch - she plans to use it to store important papers and documents such as passports and vaccination books.  :-)


I will be linking up at Crazy Mom Quilts for Finish It Up Friday and at Janda Bend Quilts for TGIFF.
