Patchwork Pocket

From Porto with Love Patchwork Pocket by Heidi Staples of Fabric Mutt

I snagged a sample spree bundle of Sarah Watts' new From Porto with Love collection from Modern Quilter after Quilt Market, and I think it's one of her best. The colors are lovely, and the details are perfect -- so much great material for fussy cutting. I combined it with a few prints from Anna Rifle Bond's Les Fleurs collection for this small project. We had a difficult weekend of health issues with Bunny, spending several nights in the hospital, and though we're joyful to say that the doctor is getting to the bottom of her breathing issues, it's all been pretty exhausting and emotional. So once again, I embraced a little patchwork therapy.

I originally planned this pocket to be for my sunglasses, but it turned out to be a bit too small for that. Happily, though, it's exactly the right size for the little package of Kleenex that I keep in my purse.

The pocket is lined in a peach City Toile print, a soft lawn that features gold metallic designs. It makes such a gorgeous lining and goes perfectly with the travel theme that I was using for this project.

For the back, I used another metallic print from Sarah's collection. Sardines never looked so beautiful!

Another week, another small project...just the way I like it.

  6. Another adorable project :-) I think that I'm most excited about the From Porto with Love (which is saying something considering how excited I am about ALL of them!). So sorry about your sick baby - that's the worst feeling for a parent. Glad they're making progress and hope it continues!

  8. That pouch is perfection. Every single piece together in a gorgeous whole.

    More importantly though, I hope Bunny will be okay and the docs and nurses and other specialists will be able to help you help her. Thinking of you all.
