Pretty Little Pouch--Round 3!


Michelle and I run a little swap on Flickr called the Pretty Little Pouch Swap.  This round my partner had very definite style and color-scheme preferences and I tried to oblige with this!  I used some linen, some Ruby, and some not-yet-released Walk In The Woods (which Kelly S. scored for me at Quilt Market!).  In retrospect, I wish I would have appliqued little Red down too, but I was a bit nervous about appliquéing something so thin.  Also, I forgot to use stabilizer when making the tree, so there are puckers there.  Luckily I remembered before I did the leaves, fox, and path!

For the back I used left over squares of Walk In the Woods and appliqued some hearts and used a little hand-stitching.  Why do I my pouches for this swap have linen and hand-stitching?  I'm in such a rut!  At least I didn't make another rainbow!
For the inside, I used almost all my little Walk In The Woods squares to create a lining.  Fun, right?

This is the whole package that will be making it's way to my partner tomorrow!  Hope she likes it!
