Pretty {little} Pouch finished!

I'm a bit early finishing up my pouch for the Pretty {little} Pouch swap, but since I helped create the group and I'm going on vacation the last week of April, I figured I should finish up soon. 
Pretty {little} Pouch complete!

I found a template for that arch pattern in a old quilt magazine, but it was intended to make an entire quilt AND it was a little too small for my purposes.  I enlarged it on my scanner and it worked out pretty well.  The final pouch dimensions are 7"x10".  I tried to take elements of my partner's mosaic and combine them.  It's really hard not to copy something exactly, especially when you KNOW they like what was in their mosaic and you can only HOPE they like what you create.  I used linen, some Munki, some LBAOM, and a little Spoonflower Heather Ross prints to make my rainbow.  Then, I added some hand stitching to the front and back (hopefully I didn't overdo it!)  I feel like such a dork stressing so much about a silly little swap!  I'm stuffing this pouch full of Munki charms and some other goodies I think my partner will like then it's off to the post office!

Wow~!!! Kelly, this is amazing, from the placement of the elements in the interest fabrics to the stitching (especially that multi-colored arch). Wait! That adorable little blue bird is hand-stitched? Girl, you outdid yourself.

I was soooo hoping this was going to your etsy shop. Lucky partner. ;D

ohhh I've been loving this for as long as you started posting pics. You did a fab job on the hand stitching. You're going to have to show me in person how you did that. ;)
