Tute: Double Zipper Pouch/Pencil Case from madebychrissied

Double Zipper Pouch/Pencil Case Tute by Chris Dodsley

The Double Zipper Pouch/Pencil Case is wide enough to hold a 12" ruler and a notepad up to 5-5/8" wide alongside just about anything else you might need on your first day Back To School.  It also has a separate zippered front pocket to hold your spare change and even your phone!  Its size makes it super versatile, how about using it as a makeup bag or a coupon pouch?

Origami Pouch from Pieced Brain

Stop the presses! Look at the pouches I made! They came out so nice - a few more gifts ready for my family in Brazil! They are called Origami Pouch (es) but I am calling them my Sock Monkey Pouches because of the buttons I added.

I used this fantastic pattern created by Amy Barickman at Indygo Junction. It is called Origami Pouch because with a few folds you can create a very cool little bag! The pattern is very detailed, super well written, and features lots of diagrams so there is no guesswork. You can use fat quarters or ready-made ...

⌘ A Piece of Me Pouch pattern release ⌘ from Charm About You

At the beginning of the year I made these curved bottom padded zip pouches (born out of forgetting to measure twice and cut once while making my Everything in It's Place Bag). Not wanting this gorgeous fabric and my quilting to go to waste, I decided to use as much of the panel as I could and I ended up with two zip bags that I love! I tried a different way of attaching the zips (the lace one isn't so neat, I wouldn't suggest it for this) and I have finally written up a pattern so ...

Simply Sew'In from Charm About You

I had the most amazing, inspiring, relaxing, fun weekend at the Simply Sew'In retreat. Thank you to Justine and Lisa from Simply Solids for inviting me to teach and for organising such a brilliant weekend! 

I met so many fabulous women, including my roomie Jenny - who I laughed and cried with, she's so lovely, honest and talented. I got to spend time with wonderful Trudi, we had good chats and hugs! I am so grateful to her for her wisdom and inspired by her strength and compassion. It all got very deep and these friendships and bonds are ...

Serendipitous Pouch For Olfa Cutter! from Quilts + Color

When I posted this and asked why it had such an unusual shape this was NOT the answer as I was creating it.
I had created a bargello rectangle and from it I cut the back of a vest. This was the small amount of patchwork that was left at the top. It had this unusual shape created by the cutting line for the shoulders and neckline.
I decided to just use as much of the leftover scrap as I could to make an irregular pouch.
When I shared it and asked if anyone knew why I made this unusual ...

scraps + improv from Sotak Handmade

Lately I've been feeling incredibly overwhelmed and exhausted, finding myself with a mile long to do list and very little energy to tackle it all. So, the other day I decided to forget about all the urgent stuff and indulge in some much needed "scrap therapy" instead.

I dove into my scrap bin and improv pieced these random blocks.

I knew I didn't want to commit to any large project, so I simply turned some of them into coasters.

And then I made more coasters, of course :)  These were super fun to make and I greatly enjoyed adding ...

Summer Fun - Red White and Blue Zippered Pouch from Amy Made That

Hello, Friends!
Who's ready for summertime?
I am!!!

Whenever I need a nice gift, I like to make a new version of
the Open Wide Zippered Pouch,

I've made so many of these...
and I've never been disappointed with the results.
This time I chose some red, white and blue fabrics
that I bought from Connecting Threads a few years ago.
The line was called Smooth Sailing.

{I love the anchors, all lined up!}

The addition of gray to the 
traditional patriotic palette looks so smart! 
That's why I chose ...

What do you do with a beloved worn out pouch? from Mama Love Quilts

Many moons ago, a pink pouch came into my life. It was magenta and black and I loved it. It was perfect for carrying around my makeup, although a bit too short to fit my powder brush. Nevertheless, I used it until one day I looked at it, saw that it was stained and torn and decided it was time to say goodbye. But I loved the design so much that I wanted to have a new one.

The design was rectangular and boxy, unlike any pouch I had made before. I didn’t have a pattern to make a ...

Two quilt tops and a pouch from Pamela Quilts

I've really enjoyed reading all the comments on yesterday's post!  I am really loving hearing about what everyone's favorite blocks are.  I feel like the old classics like Ohio Star and Churn Dash are still good solid blocks that many people enjoy making even now.  I don't think they will ever go out of style!

I had an enjoyable afternoon yesterday as my youngest daughter came to visit!  She brought over her new shipment of Young Living oils and I decided she needed a pouch to put them in.  I found an easy tutorial on Patchwork ...

laptop case from Sotak Handmade

I've been meaning to make a protective case for my laptop for ages now but I was totally stuck on what design and fabrics to go with, of course. And then, while browsing Pinterest the other day, I came across these simple, yet wonderfully stylish cases and I knew right away a padded giant pouch of sorts was the way to go.

I combined some of my screen printed fabric with black and white striped fabric from my stash and loosely based this case on my Purse Organizer (just made it much bigger and with less pockets).

I then ...

handbags and gladrags ✂ appliqué projects ✂ from Charm About You

Late last year I designed and made some projects that I can finally share because they are in this month's Love Patchwork & Quilting: Issue 46!

I made four appliqué projects, all with cuteness and handbags in mind! I always like to have little pouches to keep the contents of my bag organised, and this one is perfect for lip glosses and balms (hence the longer and shorter pockets) or pens, washi and sticky notes. The heart kam snap on the lips is a kitschy touch that works either way. 

The cord keeper is great for stopping earphones, USB cords ...
