Open Wide Pouch


It’s not often that I see a fabric that I have to have, but the new Wee Wander line of fabric is just too cute!  I immediately purchased a yard of the Summer Ride fabric to make Sweet Pea a little skirt.  Before I got to her skirt though, the kids were invited to a birthday party.  I asked Sweet Pea if she minded me using a little of her fabric to make an open wide pouch to go along with the gift full of art supplies.


I hadn’t used this tutorial before, but I knew it would be a good one.  The pouch came together so quickly and easily, I know I’m going to have to make many more!  OPEN WIDE POUCH


I was inspired by this pouch I saw, that had leather on the bottom.  I went to the leather suede jacket I had used for the plantain elbow patches and leather pockets and cut into the sleeves to squeeze out enough fabric for the bottom of the pouch.  The rest of the fabric are leftovers from various projects.   OPEN WIDE POUCH


I love, love, love how this turned out.  I think it’s a combo of the beautiful fabrics, great tutorial, and touches of leather that have me wanting to make another pouch right away!

What have you been up to this weekend?  Any new sewing projects?

    Very cute! this would be hard to give away (I’d want this myself). I bought the same fabric in pink and green for some matching dresses, I love the whole line.
