This week I’ve got another fun patchwork pouch pattern like some of the ones I’ve shown before. It really helped me use up some of my quilting cotton stash, and I love the finished look of them! They’re patched together with lots of skinny strips and the seam allowances are left raw and exposed. It gives it this lovely frayed edge look that I love. Then to polish it off, contrast patches are sewn over the top.
The size of them is pretty big at 8″ wide and 6″ tall, so it’ll hold a lot of pens and pencils or a good bit of travel toiletries! I used a lot of interfacing in mine to make them look crisp, but you could make yours floppier if you wish. But either way, they’re perfect for using little scraps of beautiful fabrics that you can’t bear to throw away!
