I have been on a wee bit of a sewing spree just lately. Not a marathon session or anything, more a case of a few stolen moments in my sewing room …
Anyhow, the result is that I have FINALLY managed to put together a pattern for my little vintage-style zippered pouch, which is now available as an instant download in my Etsy shop.
I’ve written it in the style of a step-by-step tutorial and have included almost 50 close-up colour photos to help you along, The cool part about it being a digital file is that you can zoom right on in to the photos on your computer if you want to see the details even more closely!
I have made lots of these little cuties for friends and family now, but this one I will definitely be keeping for my very own 🙂
And whilst I was in a creative mood, I came across a great tutorial for a fabric notebook cover and enjoyed putting together my own version from the left over fabric scraps.
They make a lovely set … don’t you think?
Happy stitching everyone!
Magnifique, superbe, très beau !!!
Adorable! You have inspired me 🙂
That’s really pretty Natalie, I love the way you’ve fussy cut some of the pattern for the add on, really nice.
Thanks for visiting today Jules 🙂 x
This is so cute!
Thanks Natalie for the pattern for this beautiful pouch, I’ve downloaded it along with your lovely hexie needle case. I’m hoping to do a couple of these as Christmas presents, of course mine will never be as beautiful as the pouch I won from you, but I’ll give it my best shot. LOL
Hi Kathleen, I’d love to see a picture of your finished pouch or needle case if you don’t mind sharing? I’ve made loads of them as presents and they always go down well 🙂 Any problems with the pattern and I am only an e-mail away at firstname.lastname@example.org. Have fun creating! Natalie x
Oh Natalie don’t hold your breath lol but when I do it, probably the pouch as I can refer to the real thing, I’ll be sure and share it. Xx
Hi Natalie, I sent you an email but it’s ok, I’ve figured it out. Finished my pouch this afternoon and have to say, it doesn’t look like yours. Few mistakes that will help me next time. Your photos were invaluable, thank you. I’m quiet pleased with the result but know I can improve. 🙂
Hi Kathleen, Thanks so much for letting me share the photo of your completed pouch on my facebook page. Glad you are pleased with it 🙂 I love your fabric choices! Beautiful work! Natalie x
You’re welcome xx
