Christmas 2015: Two in One Pouches

I've been sewing up a storm here making presents for the family.  I have now made one Guitar quilt for my sweetie, one dog pillow, one cat pillow and a coffee mugs wall hanging.

This week, I played with zippers!

I decided to make Two in One Pouches by Sotak Patterns for three of the ladies.

Before making the ones to give away, I thought it might be best to make a practice piece.  I was going to keep that one, so I selected fabrics I really liked (in purple of course) and got started.  Within one evening, I had this cutie all made.

I thought this was a resounding success so the following night, I selected fabrics for the three pouches I needed to make.  Now that I knew what I was doing, making all three only took one evening!

This one is the smaller size (3.5" x 5.5") and is for Marianne.  She's a bit of a cat lady this daughter of mine so this cat fabric is just perfect for her.

A large size (4.5" x 8") in Birch Farm fabrics for Melissa, my wonderful daughter-in-law.  The contrasting fabric is Kona Caribbean.

And another large pouch for Kat, my "pretend" daughter-in-law (it's a long story!).  I just love those butterflies!

I am super pleased with these and hope the girls love them too.  If you are looking for a quick, easy, but really fun, practical gift, I highly recommend this pattern.

Are you like me and up to your eyeballs in Christmas making this week?  I would love to know what you're making!

Linking up at Crazy Mom Quilts and at Crazy Dutch Bird Quilts for TGIFF.
