Friday Finish: Swap Pouch

Popping in to share the wide open zip pouch I made for my Glamp Stitchalot partner.  I used Noodlehead's free tutorial and made the medium size pouch.  

Leftover flying geese parts in favorite prints and low volume background paired with essex linen make up the top, and I cut into my Carolyn Friedlander Carkai prints for the bottom and the lining.

I will do just about anything to avoid using interfacing, so I quilted the outside panels of the bag before assembling to give it some substance.  

I also made my partner a thread catcher using Crazy Mom Quilts pattern and opted for the quilted version.  I love the notebook paper fabric that I recently found at my LQS in the bargain bin.

Both items were stuffed with lots of goodies, and my partner seemed happy which makes me happy!  Each time I participate in a swap, I say it will be my last ;-))

Linking up with Crazy Mom Quilts.  I'll pop back in later with all the fun details on Glamp.  Until then, have a fantastic weekend!


  1. I know your partner was thrilled! Love the personal touch of adding her name on the thread catcher! Can't wait to hear all about the retreat!

  2. Fun swap gifts! I bet your partner was quite excited to receive these treasures!

  3. You're a good swap partner, René! This is a thoughtful gift, especially with her name on it. I am thinking of you often, hoping you are managing your grief about Max. My heart aches for you. Blessings.

  4. I love your pouch, it's perfect, wonderful fabric choices.
