Personalized Zip Pouches

When I needed a break from the bigger Christmas projects (like the 9-Patch Puzzle quilt), I started sewing up a few zip pouches. I had used the Heat ‘n Bond Iron-On Vinyl on one of the Denyse Schmidt fabrics from Jo Ann’s, so I used that for the pouch interiors and coordinating prints for the exteriors.
DSC_0149The exteriors seemed a bit plain, so I added a hexagon and hand embroidered some friends’ first initials!

For one lucky friend I even dug into my Anna Maria Horner voile and made an infinity scarf:

I actually really loved all of these gifts, and wanted to keep them for myself. But in the end I stood firm and gifted them all. I do have some of the voile left, though…. 😉

  1. Cute! I'm off to make some bags for a gift "basket" that A needs for a client. Is that the voile you made your dress out of? I want to make that infinity scarf, too. So many projects, so little time!
