First of all, I just want to welcome my new followers ! I hope you'll stay for a while and I really hope you won't be disappointed :)
For those of you who are not new here, you know I'm in the Modern She Made Swap and I finished my pillow last week or so but I wanted to include another small item. I decided to make a little pouch so I could fill it with scraps, thread spool and buttons. I wanted it to be simple (so it wouldn't outshine the pillow.. even though it's not really possible :) ) so I went with a circle of geese. I scaled it down a bit so it ended up being half the size of a normal circle of geese (6" instead of 12").
(Here's the pillow again.. I love it so much that I want pictures everywhere!)
Let me just tell you one thing if you've never tried paper piecing and want to : if one of your piece end up being too small and you notice it right away, unpick it and change it. Don't wait until the end thinking it'll be fine because it won't be. And changing the piece without the paper (like I tried to do) doesn't work... It really doesn't.
And cut your pieces very big. Wasting a little bit of fabric is not that bad compared to what I said above !
Anyway, here's the thing :
Notice how I lost a point in the seam ? And how it's so not perfect right there in the middle on the right ? It's killing me but I just don't want to have anything to do with this pouch anymore. Hopefully, what's inside will compensate for all it's imperfections !
Here's what's inside :
At least, I can now say that I am able to make a pouch without looking every minute at a tutorial ! That's good news :)
It was hard to close the envelope.. I can't go back now !
I might have to make another one (in my colors) because I really love it.
I'm off to working on some blocks I need to send this week !
Have a good day everyone :)
