Mouthy Stitches Pouch: Finished!


I hope my partner likes it.  I hope my partner likes it.  I hope my partner likes it.

I think I finished my Mouthy Stitches pouch...that is unless my partner sees it on Flickr and has a suggestion for me.  Is this part of a swap nerve wrecking for everyone?  I think I created something she will like. It's something that I would like to receive.  But now I wait on pins and needles hoping to hear she likes it too!  Anyway, I'll show you where I am for now:



I think my partner likes scrappy, brightly colored pouches with a neutral background. She seems to switch between greys and natural linens, but I thought on the grey the colors would really pop.  I made a paper pieced star using the Solstice Stars tutorial and then quilted a grid around it.


 She also has several bold, geometric blocky pouches in her mosaic, so I made a scrappy back that is also quilted in a grid pattern.

Both sides have batting to give them a bit of softness, but rigidity.  They are quilted with dark grey thread that is a little darker than the Kona so it kind of is visible, but doesn't steal the show.



Inside is an Echino print that runs the full length of one side (by my thumb) and is partly visible on the other side that also holds a pocket.  The pocked is Joel Dewberry Aviary print that is split into a large and small pocket.  The large pocket has a matching fabric covered button above it and a silky orange ribbon to hold it closed.  The bottom is boxed to stand on its own, which I think is just great.

And, of course, the pouch will come filled with scraps! My partner seems to like quirky Japanese prints, bold colors, bright patterns.  I hope she likes these!  There's a bit of Echino in there, Moda, Heather Ross, Monaluna, Erin McMorris, etc.  She's sure to find something to make her smile, right?


Well, partner, it was fun tracking you!  I hope I created something you like!  xx
