I was sure I had posted about these little bags back in June, but I guess it was forgotten in all the moving fray! I made a bunch of zip pouches as mother's day and birthday gifts to people, and wanted to wait until I had given them all out before sharing! It wasn't until I was going through my blog post lists looking for it to share over at 627 Handiwork's giveaway that I realized I had never even written it! Well, here it is!
These are from the Noodlehead Gathered Clutch Tutorial:
The tutorial is super easy to follow, and the results are so cute! I put little card pockets and a separator in each of them.
These are all based off Noodhead's Open Wide pouch:
|A large quilted one for my mama.|
|It was a fun pattern to just follow and quilt.|
|The inside, I loved this pretty fabric!|
|I made this one for my mother in law, my husband picked out the fabrics for her.|
|I think it was a medium sized bag.|
|I got that chevron fabric in a scrap pack from Hawthorne Threads, and was limited in the size of the bag because it was a narrow piece--I think it was the small size. Still perfect for holding little goodies in though!|
|I bought the inside fabric especially for special little gifts. So far this is the only project I've used it for.|
I made so many bags this spring that I used up my whole zipper stash, and then bought a 12 pack from Zipit on Etsy--turns out those zippers (YKK) are much nicer, smoother zippers than the ones I had from Joann's (C&C)! And they're cheaper from Zipit, even if I use a coupon at Joann's!
