Trying Somethings New

When faced with making a little gift last weekend, I added some fun to the task by trying both a zipper pouch pattern and fabric that was new to me. The pouch? The Color Block Pouch by Svetlana/s.o.t.a.k handmade, whose patterns are always a delight. And the fabric was Windham Fabrics' Opalescence by Whistler Studios in three saturated, sparkly colors.

There were three templates to make the pouch front, but they were of the easiest kind, and the pouch, complete with metal zipper, went together quick and easy.

For the lining, I was pleased to find a small bit of Thomas Knauer's Frippery in my stash, an old favorite which coordinated with the pouch colors perfectly.

So that was enjoyable! Definitely a pattern I'll keep in mind to make again.

Linking up with Finish It Up Friday.
