Head over to Skip to My Lou for this quick pouch tutorial as part of the Bake, Craft, Sew, and Crochet holiday series. This holiday season, I am going to try to make only useful things!
This pouch’s finished size is 5″ x 7″, so it will hold your phone and cards. You could add a wrist strap to take it with you and skip the purse. I used some faux leather and my Framework fabric that you can buy here and here, among other places.
I wanted to post another one of the samples that I made for Quilt Market — the Emery Dress by Christine Haynes. Lots of people asked about the pattern, so I thought I’d share. It’s now available in a .pdf version as well as a paper pattern. You can add the optional collar, bow at the waist, or longer sleeves. The fit of the dress is perfect and the instructions were easy to follow. It came together very quickly.
This dress above is made from one of my double gauze fabrics with metallic ink from the new Charms collection for Kokka. The double gauze fabric sews really well and makes the dress so comfortable!
My friend Laura made these sweet needle-felted sheep for display in my Quilt Market booth. You can buy your very own sheep in her Etsy shop, Felt Jar!
You can see the sheep fabric colorways below. These are printed on cotton/linen blend fabric and the neutral colorway has gold accents. Again, this is from my Charms collection for Kokka which will be shipping to stores in December or January.
I’m back at home, but Quilt Market is still going on in Houston. Here’s a photo of my booth. I didn’t get a chance to look at many other booths this time, but you can see a few images over on Instagram. If you’re interested in ordering the Charms collection for your shop, please contact their U.S. distributor Seven Islands Fabric. It should be shipping in December or January, so it will make it to your local quilt shop in just a few months!
And below you can see some of the samples that I made. You can find my Framework collection now at Pink Castle Fabrics and Miss Matatabi.
I’m busy preparing for the upcoming International Quilt Market! If you’ll be there, please come visit my booth at Seven Islands Fabric #656 and 756. Or follow me on Instagram for updates! For wholesale ordering information, please contact Seven Islands Fabric.
