Pretty {little} Pouch Finished!

I finally finished my pouch for Round 2 of the Pretty {little} Pouch swap.  I feel a lot of pressure since I'm co-mama for this swap!  Hopefully my partner will like it!  I paper pieced the flying circle of geese block--after I shrunk it down 50%.  The circle finishes at 6" square.  I used some pretty teal colored linen and various pink and green prints for the geese.  

For the back, I fussy cut out one of the Ruby Star Rising ladies, appliqued her on, then added some decorative stitching.  I thought about embroidering a phrase below the lady instead of the stitching, but I wasn't sure how my partner would feel about "I'm a lady, damn it!" :)  I thought it was funny, but you never know if someone would be offended by that or not.  

The lining is a pink floral print from Heather Ross.  I love this swap and I can't wait for Round 3 (coming this fall for those who are curious)!  If you want to know more about the frame, glue, and template I used, see my previous post.

Oh you should have embroidered that saying, that is too funny, but yes, I guess that could offend some people! I love it, beautiful!

All I can say is, I wish I was your pouch partner! That is so freaking cute!! I love the saying too! Maybe tuck a little note inside with those words. She may get a kick out of it but it wouldn't be so permanent :)
