It’s time to share with you another little swap project I’ve been working on. An Open Wide Pouch. This is a swap organised by Lindsey over on Instagram. Stalking, designing, creating and filling a pouch full of goodies for someone else in the world.
The pattern for the pouch is a free one over at noodle head and it’s really easy to follow. I had a few trial attempts at making them before making my final pouch with great success.
I got a partner who was happy for me to make whatever I wanted as long as I had fun. She mentioned mini dresdens and stars so I tried to get some of these in there.
Here’s my make:
Do you remember the tiny Dresden party? I had this vibrant bird left over which was perfect for this bag. I didn’t have one panel of fabric in these colours for the whole width of the bag so I played with my scraps to do the back all stripes.
I enjoyed making it and I filled it with a few goodies including one of the mini handy pouches I made last month.
Taking Part in swaps is a fabulous thing because you get make beautiful things for someone but with the nature of a swap, you get something back!!
My swap partner was secret, until she contacted me. This was meant to be a secret swap until you received the package but I didn’t mind because it meant I could spy on what she was doing.
Sam was pretty amazing, sending from the USA. I am the luckiest ever because she jam-packed my pouch with such a lot of things that I was a tad overwhelmed:
