I made some stripey Split Pouches, and I thought I’d share them with you.
These pouches are kind of addictive. They come together fairly quickly and don’t use heaps and heaps of fabric, so when I saw these stripey fabrics I knew I wanted to make up a couple of pouches.
Stripes and checks are always fun to incorporate into projects. They are striking, clean and have a timeless appeal. I also like how they wrap around a project like this one.
Stabilizers: SF 101 vs Soft and Stable
The truth is that I love both of these stabilizer options. The pouch I’ve been using for my toiletries when I travel has Pellon SF 101–or a woven fusible interfacing–in it, and I love it. It feels lightweight and packable, but it still has all the body and structure that I need.
Using Soft and Stable is great too. If you are unfamiliar, it is like a foam that is cushy, soft and holds its shape. I like it too, and I don’t really have an answer for which I like better, which is why I include both options in the Split Pouch pattern. The Medium Split Pouch (left) is made with Soft and Stable, and the Small Split Pouch (right) is made with SF 101.
Want to Sew Along?
Do you want to Sew Along with the Split Pouch? The Split Pouch is so perfect for gift giving, that I thought it’d be really fun to do a Sew Along. Holiday season is nearly upon us, so why don’t we get a head start?
