Some of you may remember a few other pouches I have sewn for this swap, and I have had so much fun. So, I managed to squeeze in some time to participate in Round 7 the past couple of weeks. Tomorrow is the mailing deadline, and I’m ready! I’ve really enjoyed creating for my partner. She requested a Wristlet — something to carry her phone, keys, and a few cards. She also mentioned that she likes blues and grays, butterflies, and a zipper closure.
Here is what I created…….and I can’t wait to see what I get in the mail sometime this week! This is the front…
And here is the back side:
This is the bottom pleat….I really like this part of the pattern I used.
I adjusted the pattern, added these little credit card pockets, to meet my partner’s criteria. I was a little unsure if I could figure it all out, but I did…
Here’s a close up of the butterfly embroidery. I have a fantastic book full of patterns. There is a CD with the book so that you can pirnt out the patterns in the size that you want. It has all types of patterns — something for everyone!
The first time I participated, I didn’t realize that most of the ladies send a few extra goodies in the package. I learned quick! So here are some fat quarters from my stash. I happened to find some butterflies that I thought I could part with, along with some buttons and Stampin’ Up! trim. I hope she likes everything. I had so much fun making something special and trying to create something she will really like!
