For this project, I really need a design wall in my sewing room so that I can keep the blocks up all the time and work on how they will fit together. That will require some furniture moving and figuring out!
This week, I have also been working on a Pyramid Pouch, and just finished it up this morning!
For the last couple of years, I have had fun trying different types of pouches and bags, so when I saw that Sandra of Musings of a Menopausal Melon had published her pattern and tutorial for the Pyramid Pouch on Moda Bake Shop, I knew I wanted to try it! Working with equilateral triangles was a good stretch for my sewing skills, and although my points aren't as perfect as I would like them to be, I'm not disappointed in my work, for this first time!
I used 16 charm squares from a charm pack of One for You, One for Me by Pat Sloan for Moda for the outside. I chose the navy, teal, and lime pieces because I thought they would go well together and give my pouch a happy look! Unfortunately, the lime color didn't photograph quite right for this close-up. For the pouch lining, I used a lime fat quarter from my stash.
Sandra's tutorial was very clear with lots of helpful hints on how to make the pouch turn out exactly the way you want. (Which I am sure I followed perfectly..wink, wink!) There is definitely plenty of room for whatever you want to carry in this pouch. I think I might use it to house all of those pesky cords and things you have to take along when you travel!
Now it's time for me to get back to work on one of my bigger WIPs. But pouches and scrappy sewing are a fun break now and then!
