Patchwork pouch…..

Its been ages since I have posted any finishes, but past few days have been hectic, with my time revolving around my son whose preliminary exams are going on.
Meanwhile, I am also getting an opportunity to join quilting course under Sylvie’s guidance ( Sylvie is a committee member of the Muscat quilters guild) and I don’t want to miss this chance.   I still have to get confirmation from their side about it. But I thought I will start getting ready from my side . Since they had already sent a list of things needed for the course, I wanted to make a pouch to carry all my little stuff .  I was working on making the patches that I made,  into a tray cloth with  mitered corners. I had almost finished it and then an idea struck !!  why not make it into a pouch.
So finally my tray cloth turned into a pouch, and here it is…..
I also wanted to try making fabric buttons, and decided to use my pouch to try it on. So I have used fabric button with loops to close the pouch from the corners. My mitered corners need some more practice to be perfect, but I am happy with the result for now.
Its a simple spacious pouch, in which I can carry all my small stuff needed for my quilting course.
Please do send in  your lovely comments,  as it inspires me to do more and try out new things.
