However, I had my commitment to the Mouthy Stitches swap and was looking forward to completing my task ready for posting day tomorrow.
The front, which I designed myself (go me!) using a paper foundation. It looks a little wonky - no matter how I try, I can't get a good pic
Here is the reverse - some of the fabrics used on the front as blocks
The front and lining - love this green!
Another shot of the back

A super wonky pic of the front(!!)
This pouch will be sent off tomorrow to it's recipient. I really hope they like it. After a little stalking to find out her likes & dislikes, I went for jewel tone colours with a green lining (which would seem to be her favourite colour and I have to say is an excellent choice, seeing as it is mine too!). I used Osnaburg as the main fabric
So now to choose a FQ of "scraps" to send with the pouch and it will be ready.
Whilst in LA, as mentioned, I did get to make a trip to Sew Modern & my credit card took a fair bashing so I must get on with the sewing now - my fabric stash is becoming more & more of a mountain and I am starting to panic about just how much I have!!! It can sometimes be a little overwhelming, can't it?
