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.


  1. What perfect timing for the pattern! It looks great and how lovely that it already has a great purpose in your step-daughter's life. :)

  2. Such a cute make, Izzy! I love the fabrics you chose and that binding is just perfect! So happy to hear your step daughter loves it too :)

  3. Stripe for binding! A favorite of mine too. I need this pattern!
