I was so lucky in our pouch swap….look at my new pouch, with the fabulous Melody Miller Typewriter fabric !! I love the grey corduroy on the bottom as well. My partner made this large pouch from the Noodlehead open wide zipper pouch tutorial. Great, isn’t it? I am a very happy camper 🙂
Look at that cute pocket in the inside 🙂
I already know that this week, my schedule is going to be kind of chaotic at work…for instance between 1-5pm today I had 8 meetings…totally crazy. So, this week I want to keep our meal plan simple.
Today, I am so excited to be hosting a give away for an independent fabric designer, Natasha K. @ Jumping Birds. I met Natasha after using her fabulous whale fabric for a chair bag order. I loved that fabric, so when she reached out and asked if I would join with her on a Back to School give away using her new line “School Days”, of course I jumped at the opportunity.
I went straight over to Spoonflower and checked the line out, decided it was perfect for the Triple Zipper pouches that I wanted to make my son’s Kindergarten teachers to say thank you. I purchased 5 half yards. This week I went to work, matching the fabrics, choosing the zippers and started on those pouches. I love how they turned out – I am sure the teachers will too (even though they are a little late :-))
