Hello to all of you who are visiting from Instagram. Hi to all of you who have me on your blog list....and if you don't follow me on Instagram you can find me @happylittlecottage1.
Today's Weekend Inspiration is brought to us by the super talented Chrissy at Sew Lux Fabrics. She has designed so many of my favorite zipper pouches and today we are going to make her Diamond Walk Pouch. Isn't this pretty? It reminds me of a beach in Florida.
If you need help with the pouch construction, Chrissy has a tutorial here. This is so much fun to put together and is a fun way to ease your way into making dresden blades if you've never done it before.
Pouches are the perfect weekend project. Once you get over your zipper phobia it should take no more than a few hours from start to finish. They are the perfect use for mini charms or your stash of little scraps. I'm still looking for the perfect zipper charm to add to this one!
You can find the kit at Sew Lux Fabric, along with so many other cute kits. Each kit has enough materials to make 2 pouches, so it's a great way to make something for you and a friend. Of course you could always make both for a gift :-)
Since I only made one pouch, I am giving away the pattern and materials for the second Coral Sea bag . All you need to add is a zipper. Just leave a comment below and tell me what you are working on this weekend. I will randomly choose a winner on Monday!
P.S. I also made this with her original kit using Lil Red. So cute. Just wanted to show how adorable this pouch is using other fabrics.
COMMENTS ARE NOW CLOSED!! I will announce the winner in Friday's post :)
