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:
I 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!
All 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!
