A Pouch, Crochet Sweater, and Green Eggs no Ham

I made the cutest little pouch! I used Chase's tutorial at 1/4" mark. She has some really cute tutorials on her blog and I want to make the triangle zipper pouch next. Too cute! I enjoy hand quilting more and more each time I do it. This was so fun because I didn't over think my fabric choices. I just chose some of my favorites and started sewing not thinking too much about placement. I even got to use one of my cute fabric covered buttons. Bonus!

Here's a shot of the lining. I love both of these prints so much and although they do not "match" I love them together. 

Here's the back. It's just so cute! The tutorial is for an I-pad mini pouch but seeing as I don't have one of those I'll be using mine as a clutch type thing. Probably diapers, wipes, keys and wallet. It's pretty roomy.

I started crocheting a sweater for the baby. I am not so good at it but it's fun. I learned how to crochet when I was a teenager and I made lots of hats and scarfs but this is the first pattern I've followed. The pattern is free here.

Lastly but not leastly :) Our chickens started to lay eggs! YAY! This is so very exciting for me. We had three chickens a few years ago. They were Leghorns and laid white eggs. That was fun but this is AWESOME!
So far we've gotten greenish blue, lighter blue, pinkish brown, light brown and brown. Very fun!!!

Oh I miss my " girls " . I used to love watching them scratch around. The lemon meringue pie wasn't bad either. Your pouch is darling, as is everything you do : )

Love the little pouch. Can I just say that I cannot see the links or the names etc on the comments, they are there of course, but the yellow on the white background is really hard to see. :D

Gina said...

your pouch is perfect!! and your chickens lay the prettiest eggs! I keep trying my husband into getting chickens but we haven't jumped the coop hurdle.

Such a great post today! Your pouch is just awesome. I was so happy to read that you had just let the fabric order happen. That sounds like something I want to try. You're so right about the interior prints not "matching" but looking so great together. I hope to do more of those combinations in my future projects, because I enjoy seeing them elsewhere. Those eggs are also very cool. My uncle has some fancy chickens and they remind me of him. Lots to love in this post!

O.M.G. That pouch is ADORABLE!! I love it, I must go make one right now. Great job and I'm envious of your crocheting skills! I just took up knitting last year, but we are pretty much still stuck in straight lines only, nothing fancy!

Your little bag is so fun and cute! Just makes you smile looking at all those pretty patches! Love the text fabric with the mini floral fabric too.

Sewing Mom said...

I love that little bag...I don't think I would've been so creative with the black and white top...it's great with the patchwork of color!

Great eggs too.
