Holy Moly!! It’s week 17 out of 24, can you believe it?
This week’s an easy small pouch, called “Delightful Linen Pouch.” The pattern is by: Mette Robl. You know, when I saw the picture – I thought it was bigger than it really was. .but it’s tiny and so cute:
I noticed that on the picture there was some adorable cross stitch action. But you know, I haven’t ever cross stitched at all in my sewing career. I turned to twitter to ask my community “is cross stitching hard?” it was . . the general consenus was, “No.”
You know one of my favorite cross stitch pattern shops is? The Frosted Pumpkin stitchery. (if you really want to know, it’s my only shop I go to)
Did you know Lecien made embroidery hoops? Yeah I love the logo: “Just like Grandma’s favorite hoop”
I went to my local supplier of cosmo thread. . . yeah my lqs is awesome!
This pouch was really easy to put together. I didn’t do any modifications to the pattern except leave out the button. I want to do another one and add a zipper or Velcro.
I lined it with my favorite Flea Market Fancy pattern:
Oh, I totally lied – I didn’t use is the suggested interfacing – I used shape flex fusible interfacing. Yeah, I’m a rebel. Reasoning? Well I just wanted it to be more shapely and I knew shape flex would give me that result.
I also figured that the front of the pouch – is a blank canvas so decorate it how you want.
