Double Zip Pencil Pouch


Hello,

Last month I made these pencil pouches for gifts. It was Sunday morning and my son said he needs gift for hie friend's birthday in the afternoon. I need to make something that's easy and quick. 
When I said I'll make pencil pouch, he immediately agreed. I've been wanted to make this style of pencil pouch, anyway. 

I used the Doitrei Pattern for the double zipper pouch one. (The pattern is now on sale in my Etsy Shop)



It's super easy. From the Double zip Pouch pattern , I extended the width from the pattern to 10 1/2 Inch  and proceeded as per the pattern instructions. 


This really make a great gift for anyone. With multi compartments, they can easily stay organized and also they can keep their canteen coupons and ID Card (which frequently forgotten ~ sigh)


This is my fave gifting pattern now, since I love collecting scraps I can easily used them. Like this blue stripes was from my previous project. 


By changing the fabric print, you can make gift for men or women, or boys and girls. 

Well, everyone always need pouches. All kind, style and size of pouches. 

If you need to make last minute gifts, it's the time to grab the pattern.
You can purchase from the Webshop (use coupon CVG10) or in my Etsy Shop (it's on sale through Monday!)

Thank you for stopping by,

Have a nice weekends,

The borders are just beautiful, aren't they? These shot cotton also a dream to work with. Especially if you're a quilted or bag maker!

Cricket & Women Bifold Wallets

Hello December!

The last few weeks I was quite busy. The boys were having inter school cricket match one after the other. The elder one's under 16 Team won runner up trophy, while the younger one's under 13 Team came up 4th. A good performance for 1st timer on a competitive match! It was a huge learning experience for the younger team . We are very proud of them!

Well done!

I've learnt quite a few cricket terms  in those 2 weeks ! LOL .

On creative side, I'd like to thank all of you who came and purchased few items during the Cyber Week Sale! 

I'm still working on few orders right now and added two bifold wallets in the shop. I really had fun making these wallets.

Green Bifold Wallet

I'm a huge fan of Riley Blake fabrics and collected quite a few. Most of them I bought from Etsy and some from my trip to Seoul. This green wallet was from the FQ bundle


I really love the cute fox and owl print. FQ bundle works best when we get stuck in mix matching! The polkadot don't come from the bundle though. The wallet is rather spacious with 6 card slots and zipper pocket. It can fit in your phone too!!

Sewing Theme Wallet

The second one is this sewing theme wallet. Sewing or quilting theme is another print that I tend to purchase more. I was browsing my fabric stash and saw the fabrics which I got from my trip to Indonesia. 


Taking photo of these two were rather challenging. Somehow I could not get the best shot! Maybe I will try again when I get a good natural lights. December is always a bit cloudy here. 

I have few more wallets cut and ready to sew and also have a couple of quilting projects that I need to finish! 



Meanwhile, the boys are having unit test until next week. Wish us luck!!

What about you? What are you working on this week? 

Thank you for stopping by!
