Thanks so much for your enthusiasm for the Petal Pouches that were part of the first issue of Making magazine. I heard through the grapevine that Flora (Making’s first issue) sold out quite quickly so I’m happy to be able to release the PDF version of the Petal Pouch here in my shop.
They’re my fun twist on a zippered pouch, a sewing project that will never cease to amaze me. I love the quick and satisfying result and of course how functional and giftable (that’s a word I know it) they are! So if you’ve sewn a pouch before, this might be a fun way to stretch your skills a bit with fun curves and darts.
One of the hardest parts about sewing for printed publication is waiting patiently for it’s release. These were so cute (especially the small size) that once I finished I wished I could have shared immediately. But being patient is good, and now I’m excited for them all over again. Patchwork exteriors anyone? Appliqué? I know you like to get creative.
I also listed more leather in the shop as well. I’ve added 3/4″-wide leather in a few lengths. One of the lengths is for the Tiny Treasures Basket pattern, the other length is great for short tote straps. I’ll be doing a full restock in the next few weeks, so thank you for being patient. If there’s something specific you’d like to see let me know and maybe it’s something I can add in the future.
Stay tuned for the second issue of Making magazine (titled Fauna) in the fall. I’m excited to have another project included!
Have a great weekend!
