Today I added these pieces of this gorgeous barkcloth fabric to my etsy shop. This fabric is called Elaine and it's from the Outback Wife collection by Gertrude Made for Ella Blue Fabrics, and wow, it is pretty!
These pieces have been hanging out in my stash and the plan was to stitch them up into a bunch of small zipper pouches. Which is a lovely idea, but it's probably not going to happen anytime soon. I did make two pouches out of it, so I got my zipper pouch sewing fix.
The pouch above is the first one and it's sold. This is just a simple zipper pouch with rounded off corners. The lining is quilting cotton stitched to canvas interlining, which gives it some weight without being puffy.
The rounded corners and the canvas interlining are both techniques used in the Double Zip Pouches pattern and they'll likely turn up again in another pattern because they work well!
This second pouch is a long and skinny pouch and it's #13 in this document with zipper pouch pattern pieces (no instructions). There are three of these pouches with the zipper pull in the previous blog post. Each is a different fabric--one in this print, one in a vintage home dec fabric, and one in a Japanese cotton.
Now it's someone else's turn with this fabric. If that might be you, come take a look at these scrap pieces here. They aren't big, but the fabric is so fantastic you only need a small amount to make something special.
