Geometric Bliss Open Wide Pouches
Happy Wednesday! I am a bit behind on sharing projects here, so over the next few weeks I'm going to try to get caught up on that. Today I have a few open wide zipper pouches to show you. I made these all last month, and in my defense one was a gift, so I had to wait until it was received!

I love making these pouches, it's such a great tutorial (by Anna), and they turn out so cute. I was in the mood for a few new knitting project bags and I knew my friend Jacey could get use from one for knitting too!

I made my pair of pouches using some prints from Geometric Bliss. I knew I wanted to use the mobius stripe in a different way, and this pouch was the perfect size for it. The little bud print was perfect for the inside, and I used the same print for the end tab as an accent.

For the second pouch I used the coral poppy print, which is one of my favorites from the collection. This pouch is a bit more bold, with the tessellate print for the lining and tab.

For Jacey's pouch I knew I wanted to use this coral print from Meadow by Leah Duncan. I paired it with some linen scraps to do a contrast bottom. From there I pulled the blue lining and yellow zipper from the colors in the print.

All of these pouches are the medium size. I used SF-101 to interface them, and the zippers are from Zip-it.

I always enjoy making these pouches, they come together super quick and function great. I'm sure there are more in my future!

  3. Fantastic pouches! I just made my first one two days ago. I love it - and my Mom, who get this for birthday, too. They are also extra elegant with leather.

  7. My comment disappeared, so hopefully i'm not inadvertently posting twice! I love my wide mouth zipper pouch you made me - I use it all the time! Right now i'm using the drawstring pouch you made me a few years ago to hold the hat i'm knitting Brice. EVERY time I pull it out to work on it, I think of you and all the handmade bags you've made me over the years. Almost all of the ones I use were made by you for me. One of my very favorites (well, they are all my favorites) is the little patchwork one you made me first. I see it pop up on Pinterest all the time and I think how lucky I am to own it. :)

  9. The tutorial doesn't mention interfacing, so I wanted to see if you fuse the whole backside of the outer fabric or just inside the seam allowance? Thanks,
