this tutorial by Pink Stitches and I made the larger size. I was happy to use that pink strap for the handle, which was previously made for a purse, but then I decided not to use it after all. I hung on to it for several years, knowing that I would use it eventually. I'm extremely surprised that I was able to find it when I needed it! Ha!
This next zip pouch was a much faster project....
here), with a few modifications. I used one fabric for the exterior instead of two and I quilted the exterior panels onto a thin cotton batting before assembling the pouch. It adds a little bit of extra structure and texture.
I'm happy to report that my daughter's friend LOVES the pouch and uses it every day at school. Woohoo!
One more project from the stash to share....
I made these cloth napkins for my neighbor's son who just moved into his first house. He was hinting last summer that his mom needed to learn how to make some so he could have a set or two for when he moved to his new place. Well, I remembered that hint and was happy to sew them up for him. He was thrilled. What a great guy! :) I cut 18" squares and hemmed them up. Quick, easy and practical!
That's it for me today! Now it's your turn to link up your finishes for the week. Thanks so much for joining me for finish it up Friday! I hope you have a GREAT weekend!
What a cute bag - the colors are so happy!
Everything looks great. My favorite is the adorable scrappy box bag!
Those pouches are so cute!!! And I love the scrappy goodness of the box pouch ;) I have that on my to make someday list ;) And I love the idea of a long hiatus on your scrappy projects!! I am going to borrow that and say that some of my quilts have had a long hiatus as well :) Thanks for another week of scrappy inspiration!!
I love both of those pouches! I love the red handle on the first one. :)
All your projects are fantastic but I really love that tween pouch. I can see why she uses it every day at school. C.U.T.E. I wonder what you are doing with the boxy pouch bag? Without having the dimensions it reminds me of a bag I had longgggggg ago to carry my shoes in to school. I just love all the patchwork fabrics and they go so well together. Better than cute!!
I have never made a boxy pouch...but drool over them every time I see on! Yours is wonderful! I love the scrappy nature of it! Thanks for the inspiration!
Love all the projects, but especially the napkins. I love cloth napkins. I have a couple of sets that I made and we have recently replaced them after 5 years of constant use. Such a great idea for a gift.
I love all your projects, and the cloth napkins for a guy warmed my heart. What a great idea! I love using cloth napkins and my son, who likes to cook, might appreciate them as a gift from Mom.
Your boxy pouch is adorable. Thanks for sharing the link for the tutorial.
Super cute pouches and now I'm itching to make napkins! So lovely to have handmade gifts gratefully received and knowing they'll be happily used!
I love the pouches! The napkins are a great house-warming gift - great idea!
I agree with the others, commenting. All your projects are cute as the dickens! You do scrappy so well! Loving the fox fabric in the napkins, my daughter would love those!
Very cute, and I love that you used scraps :) xx
I love how so little is wasted in your sewing economy. I mean, using a strap from a former project; that’s genius. Time for me to go back to the vortex tutorials to refresh my memory. Your tutorials never grow old.
So much fun to see that fabric get a new life and home as those napkins!
These are such fun projects! I have some scraps left from the crazy rails quilt that I made with the help of your tutorial, they'll be perfect for the box pouch. Have a lovely weekend.
I love the fabric you used for the napkins - I'd be secretly trying to make sure I ended up with the animals fabric every single time!!
Great zip pouches. I'm terrible about making non-quilt things but have been meaning to use up some fabrics for napkins. Just curious if you have ever made two sided napkins and if so did you do any stitching to hold the layers together through the middle. My thought is to stitch two layers across a few times and then self bind by folding one layer over the other around the edges. Any thoughts?
I just wanted to thank you for the link up party. I so enjoy reading the other links and it helps to focus my week too. I have just bought your new book, so inspiring!
Thanks Amanda, Happy New Year!
Until you shared this project, I never thought about making fabric - yardage - using the scrap vortex method, and then turning it into something else. Genius! I'm adding this idea to my 2018 list of projects, which in all honesty is pretty short. I'm finishing a couple of WIPs, and the remainder of the year's goal is to NOT BUY ANY FABRIC. It's not about spending money on material, but rather about using what I have. My stash pieces aren't very large (half yard, at the most), so I don't have the option of making a planned quilt in a specific color palette. So scrappy it will be. Love this concept of making scrappy yardage! Let's see if I can make it happen.
So beautiful! scrappy pouch is always the best!!
