Pretty Pouch Swap

Last month I participated in the Pretty Pouch Swap hosted by Kim of Lily Patch Quilts.

I had a lot of fun and got to know my partner a little bit too, it is always fun to learn about new people and try and make something that they will hopefully love. As this was a pouch swap the pattern I picked was the Gathered Clutch by Noodlehead. It is a pattern I have made once before and I really loved it.

My partner Roxie described her style as Rustic Tuscan which I had never heard of, so I of course headed over to Pinterest and did a search. I saw lots of blues and browns together, which is awesome because I happen to have lots of both of those colors!  Here is the pouch I came up with:

Gathered Clutch - Rustic Tuscan - https://www.sewbittersweetdesigns.comI just love these 2 prints together! Here is an inside shot – I opted for the pockets and for the divider. I love being able to separate things in my wallet so I wanted to make sure Roxie had that option too!

Inside - gathered clutch - https://www.sewbittersweetdesigns.comAll I did was reverse the prints on the inside. I used about a fat eighth or so of both my fabrics and I’m tickled with how it turned out. I tucked a mini charm pack inside for my partner. We were supposed to throw in local treats but I don’t keep much in the house because of Anne’s allergies. I hope my partner didn’t mind that too much.

Tomorrow I will be sharing a special quilt I am working on for Anne so make sure you stop by to check it out!

    I love your pouch. The brown looks like a batik almost. What a lucky person your partner is. I know I’d rather have a mini-charm pack than more sugar to add to my bloodstream (she said, after eating 3 mini-cupcakes from a specialty baker today).

    Rustic Tuscan is new on me, but the pouch looks like it should fulfil her every wish 🙂
