I’ve been in this sewing stage lately. I’m dabbling into learning how to sew clothing for myself……I tell you some items I’ve sewn are really funny, but I will keep practicing. I’m getting refresher courses from YouTube videos and sewing blogs and it’s been blast….I’ve even joined a Facebook sewing group….too funny. I can sew basics, but when it comes to reading a clothing pattern, I get a little lost with some of the terminology. Well, the instructions for this pouch was found (here).
I’ve decided to make a small pouch for my jewelry, since I will be traveling more this year. My jewelry usually end up in my old clear pouch, which I’ve had for years…..time to update. I really like the way it came out, and I also made one for my Kindle Fire. It also helps me practice with sewing zippers.
Note: As you can see, I’ve tried two different lining fabrics. The jewelry pouch lining is the velvet from one of my pillows (here). It was too thick, so I changed it for the Kindle pouch to satin lining and this was too thin. I would change the lining fabric or eliminate it all together because the plaid fabric is already has weight to it.
