Hello, pretty patchwork pouch in pink and black! Since first coming up with the idea for the Improv Zip Wristlet I've wanted to make it in patchwork, but felt stuck when thinking about which fabrics to use and how to lay them out.
Then the other day it came to me that dividing the bottom center section meant I could use up some of my smaller pink and black scraps. This classic combination of colors always works out well, and a color theme is a good way to go if you need help narrowing down which prints to use in patchwork.
The Improv Zip Wristlet pattern includes one page at the end of the instructions about to make it in other sizes. So you'll be seeing many, many different sizes of this bag.
This one here is 6.75" wide x 4.75" high (17cm x 12cm). The C divisions (mark C first) are at 1.25" (32mm) and the A/B division is at 1.25" (32mm). This one is not boxed, but the corners are rounded off. I sewed all the way around the perimeter and then traced around a medium spool of thread (274 yards) at each corner and stitched along the marked lines.
