FO: Pretty Little Pouch

Now that my partner has received her pouch, I can share the secret. If you remember, I received this pouch from Amber in the swap. Little did we know, I was her partner, too! Typically, in a blind swap, you are matched with two people: one to give to, one to receive from. The mods accidentally paired Amber and I up both ways. When I received her pouch, I was surprised! It was even more fun finishing her pouch, though, knowing that I would be able to reciprocate so quickly.

Progress: Pretty Little Pouch Swap

I stitched up some hexagons using a rainbow of fabrics. Hexagons were a first for me, and very fun.

Finished: Pretty Little Pouch

I decided to sew them together in rows, and I used Kona Medium Gray for the background fabric. I love the quilting I did, which was just to frame the hexagons in an abstract way. I'm also pleased with the handstitching.

The pouch is colorful, and I honestly had a hard time parting with it.

I used this green elephant print for the lining, and a bright purple zipper to finish it off.

I'm really happy with it, and Amber loved it!

I'm glad to have another swap crossed off my list.

Psst. I mentioned a giveaway is coming up, and I'll be posting it this weekend, as part of Sew Mama Sew's May Giveaway Day! Stay tuned!
