more swapping

Once was just not enough with the {pretty little pouch swap}. They started Round 2 a few weeks ago and I just had to participate. I decided to switch things up a bit this time and make a boxy pouch. These are great for so many things. While there is nothing little about this pouch, I think it's all kinds of cute and very functional.

My partner wasn't super-picky about what she liked, so I decided to design this as a reflection of things I really like. With that in mind, I used fabrics from Bliss by Bonnie & Camille (my favorite line) accented with a basic solid white. I chose to quilt this using a straight line method in white. I love the texture it creates... simple and subtle.

For the inside, I decided to laminate this great Bliss Check in Aqua to make it water resistant and easy-to-clean with a damp cloth. The seams have been dressed up with binding in the oh-so-popular Bliss Red Dot.

I really love this bag and am feeling just a teensy bit sad to give it away. Guess I'll have to make one for myself now!


  1. This is so cute and you did an awesome job!

  2. Love it! It turned out really cute!

  3. ummm.... LOVE! We have the same taste in colors for sure!

  4. The tote is so cute! Even the inside is very pretty. I think I'd have to keep that quilt in the "At Last" post. Way too much work to sell.

  5. What do you mean by, "I decided to laminate.." did you use iron on vinyl or purchase a laminated piece of Bliss. I need to look this up, I know I've read something about iron on vinyl before but I've forgotten where. Love the Pouch!


comments make me happy!
