Thanks to everyone who gave me ideas for what to include as extras in my DQS14 package. You all had great ideas!
I decided to make a zipper pouch for my swap partner. I came across the Pink Stitches Boxy Pouch on Instagram and decided to give it a try.
I started by making two improv panels using scraps of low volume prints.
I then quilted straight lines on the panels.
Here’s a look at the pieces ready for assembly.
I did a couple of things differently from the tutorial. I sewed the sides together by folding them into a triangle and sewing across the triangle. I also added tabs on the sides instead of the straps.
Inside the pouch, I put fabric scraps of text prints, a bar of Chocolove, and a bag of catnip for my partner’s cat.
My partner received her package today. I’m happy to report that she likes the quilt and the extras.
Now I can breathe a sigh of relief.
