Split Pouch Sew Along Week 5
It’s week 5, and I can’t believe we are already to the end of the Split Pouch Sew Along. I’m glad that I now have a big batch of pouches to hand out to some of the people in my life, as well as some to keep on hand for when the need arises.
Week 5 Video
In the video this week, I took a look at my list of people to sew for as well as my list of techniques to try out. This guided my makes.
Quilted Split Pouch
The first pouch that I made has a quilted exterior made from a quilt scrap. When cutting it to size, I realized that it was a scrap from my quilted couch! How about that? Clearly I’ve been hanging on to this snippet for a few years…
It’s soft and blue, and I love the structure. The exterior is made from a quilted panel of quilting cotton fabric, batting and a backing fabric.
I’ve wanted to try out this composition with quilt batting, and I’m happy to report that it’s a good one! It has structure and softness. Plus, this is a great way to use up those batting scraps.
Embroidered Split Pouch
My second pouch for the week started with a canvas fabric from Rifle Paper Co. It’s such a pretty print that can stand up on it’s own, but as I was reviewing my list of techniques to try during this Sew Along, I realized that I hadn’t tried any embroidery. So, here we go!
Embroidery is pretty easy on a beautiful fabric like this. You can be as creative or basic as you want. I grabbed pretty threads and just followed some of the motifs as I pleased.
Then I added some French Knots too. They add such a pretty texture.
On the inside, I worked in this “Handmade” label from Sarah Hearts. It’s bright and cheerful.
The canvas fabric is nice and sturdy, but I also used Pellon SF101 woven fusible interfacing to beef it up just a bit more.
