For someone who despises installing zippers in my sewing, I sure do put myself in a position to make a lot of pouches! I was very excited when I got my partner for the Pretty Little Pouch swap because she's one of the first people I ever met on Flickr and I really like her a lot. She likes bright colours and linen and wanted a large pouch. I hope this makes her happy.
The linen is thick and nubby, and new to me. I was a little surprised to see how out of control my needle felt during the top stitching. But I think the wobbly lines add some character. The back is more linen and I top stitched various lines to add a pattern. I like how it turned out.
I doubt that I can recreate this pouch but I think I'm going to try to make something similar for myself because even though I sew a lot, I still keep my work toiletries in a ziploc bag!
