Pretty Little Pouch Swap

This is the pouch I made for my partner in the Pretty Little Pouch Swap this round - she asked for a pouch large enough to hold a sewing project she's working on. I saw one of these on My Sewcial Hour and loved it - I want to make one for myself now too! I used the hoop bag pattern from Frosted Pumpkin Stitchery and kind of made mine the same patch-worky way as the original one I saw. I used a charm pack of Sophie by Moda - I just think it's got a lot of pretty, fresh colors that hopefully my partner will like. I also enclosed a new charm pack of the same fabric for her to play with!

This is the fantastic pouch I received from Ella (shimmyblister) and I could not love it more! She nailed it on the colors and the AMH fabric, I loved the extra fabric she sent and there was even a yummy chocolate bar that went missing (ahem) before I could photograph it. This has been a great swap and I would love to participate in it again - quick and fun, the best kind! Of course it helped that I got something so wonderful too :-)

Oh and NEXT SATURDAY is our Atlanta Modern Sewing Guild Project Day, where we all get together and work on a great project together, at Whipstitch Fabrics from 8AM - noon. Our project is the Anna Maria Horner Figure 8 (or Infinity) Scarf - super easy, CUTE and FREE (pattern anyway) for the cold weather I'm hoping we'll be getting soon :-) Come join us!


  1. Yay! I'm glad you liked the pouch (and its contents). I wish I could join you at Whipstitch but I'm spoken for this Sat.

  2. Your hoop bag turned out great!! I always love patchwork additions to any project. :)

  3. Hey Darcy! I'm finally getting around to blogging about the awesome pouches you sent me. Thanks again!
