Lily Pouches

Lily Pouches by Heidi Staples of Fabric Mutt

We are so ready for spring at my house. With deer frolicking in the front yard and wildflowers blooming everywhere, it seems like it's finally here to stay. I love it when my sewing is a perfect match for the season, and these pouches made with the Lily collection by Sue Penn for Penny Rose Fabrics feel exactly right for this time of year.

Over spring break, I had the chance to fly back to California to visit my sister and her family. It was a lovely trip, full of sweet visits with family and friends. I brought these pouches along as gifts for a few special people. Whenever I need a quick gift, I almost always go with a pouch. They're simple, fast, and useful for just about everyone.

These came together in just two afternoons of sewing. I sewed small strips together and quilted on either side of each seam. I usually like to mix up my prints, but this time I decided to stick with a separate colorway for each pouch. Going with a more cohesive color scheme for each piece was a nice change, and I will definitely do it again in the future.

At about 4 x 6", these are just the right size to tuck into a bag. As always, I added leather ties as zipper pulls and twill tape loops to the sides of each pouch.

Happy sewing, friends -- and happy spring!

  3. Your pouches are so pretty! I need to remember the twill tape to make them easier to zip! And what part of Calif is your sister in? I'm north of SF about 60 miles. Calif is so big that being in Northern Calif is like another state from Southern Calif. But you moved to an even bigger State!! :-) Hugs, H
