The urge to do some scrap busting took over the other day and I decided to finally make a start on making a Pink Stitches Boxy Pouch, which I’ve wanted to try for ages.
I chose a pink and grey colour scheme and I’m pretty in love with it. I want to make ALL THE THINGS pink and grey.
Strange thing is that you would never catch me wearing pink clothing – it’s a colour that looks terrible on me. But I seem to have accumulated pink fabrics to the point that it’s the colour most represented in my fabric stash. Apparently I have a serious attraction to pink.
I used up a bunch of small scrappy bits and put together a couple of panels, then quilted them with straight lines.
Paper clips and TVs…oh my! And I love that Pam Kitty Morning button panel.
This panel is quite wonky. It seems I struggle to sew in a straight line sometimes. (I suspect I’m amongst good company there.)
So I finished the panels, trimmed them up and had them looking beautiful. Then I realised…I’d made them way too small! I thought I’d measured them up properly, but obviously my metric trained brain struggled to measure in inches. *shakes fist*
Ah well – these pretty panels are too good to waste, a small zippy will be made. But boxy pouch, mark my words, I WILL CONQUER YOU. This week hopefully.
