Melody Miller pouches

Hi all,

Firstly, I just want to thank everyone for their really understanding and encouraging comments on my last post. I feel like I am in a much better place now!

Today my littlest fella was home sick and not happy about it. He was so upset that when I rang kindy to let them he wasn’t coming they could hear him crying in the background….the problem was he missed his first excursion – they all walked to the local library for a visit and tour. A big deal for a little guy!

Anyway, this gave me a free morning…no excursion to help with and home with a sick child – what would I do?

If you follow me on Instagram you might remember this picture…BTW I am “scrappynhappy” over there if you want to follow along. Let me know if you are there and I will follow you too. This is some pouches that I cut out over a week ago and didn’t get to finish at the time. I cut into my precious Melody Miller panel for these!

I used the Noodlehead Pouch tutorial for these, I love that tute! For the little one though I made it smaller than the smallest one so it is very cute! The larger one here is actually the middle size in the tute.

Doesn’t the clock look cool? I’m not sure what I will use the large pouch for now, I was going to use it as a clutch for the wedding I went to last Friday but it wasn’t made in time. The little one is already in my handbag with my asthma puffer, panadol, bandaids and lippy in it, all the things a girl needs at the ready!

The inside fabric I got at the local PWS, they have it in a few colour ways too. 

A couple of days ago I cleaned up my cutting out table, which is a bit of a dumping ground for left over fabric, patterns and books. So I feel a lot more motivated to sew now….next on my list is converting an old pair and a new pair of long pants into shorts and repairing an old pair of shorts for the littlest fella. Summer feels like it is here already and it is still winter until tomorrow! I also have this months Ausmod bee block to make yet and I need to finish my scrap challenge mini…better not make my list too long!

Thanks for reading,
Jess ;)

Awww, poor little fellow. I hope he feels better soon. But at least it gave you the opportunity to do a bit of sewing. I love those pouches, especially the little one. I have a thing for miniatures, from books to china wear and I even have a collection of small silver spoons (they are actually salt spoons). So well done you. I think the sewing mojo is coming back ;)!
