You may remember I used these fabrics before. I made the Hanging Cosmetics Bag from the Craftsy Class Sew Sturdy Travel Organizers. The fabrics are from the Amy Butler collection, Violette, for Free Spirit. I didn't have quite enough for the body of the bag, so I used an orange from Cotton and Steel.
Back in January, I was invited to a "sew-in" and I know myself far too well to think I'd be able to actually sew instead of talk the whole time, so I decided to start a project that required several steps before the sewing process. I chose another triaxial weave, with the tumbling blocks pattern to put on a Filigree Double-Zip Pouch. At the time, I hadn't really thought about the colour selection too much, but being finished just in time for St. Patrick's Day seems very fitting, doesn't it?
I used exactly the same tutorial as I did for the Blue Calla Clover panel. I blogged about the weave here, if you're interested in links to the tutorial and tools I used.
I chose the Sew Sweetness Filigree Double Zip Pouch because I really love the freedom with the front of the pouch: it's a clean slate, and the perfect size for a feature. I also just hosted an Instagram swap for the same pattern, and it was really fun seeing everyone do amazing things with it.
