Stitch It and Gift It Blog Hop

Welcome to my day of the Stitch It and Gift It Blog Hop. Thanks so much to Carla of Creatin in the Sticks for hosting. It’s been great to see all the stitched gifts so far.

For this hop I wanted to try something I’ve never done before, a zip pouch. I’m probably one of the few who has never made one. Things with zippers have always intimidated me.

I watched a lot of youtube tutorials and came up with a pouch from some the ideas I liked. My pouch is 8×10. I did some simple top stitching/quilting and boxed bottom. I did make a few mistakes and my zipper isn’t sewn exactly straight. Over all not bad for my first zip pouch.

This pouch will be gifted to my mom. She loves bags of all kinds, especially pouches. She stores all kinds of things in them. I know she is going to love the fabric too. Like me (or me like her) she loves black. It’s her favorite behind emerald green. Black was the safer color though. Every time I try something with emerald green it’s not quite right. Lol I guess that’s were I get my pickiness.

Thanks so much for stopping by today. It was fun making this pouch and I can see more of these in my future. Possibly for my nieces as well as myself.

Today is Day 1 of Nifty Novelties Blog Hop! I excited to be back to blogging and blog hopping.

Thanks to Marian of Seams To Be Sew for hosting.

Thanks also to our sponsor Timeless Treasures.

Novelty fabrics are a great way to theme any project. Whatever you are into there is a novelty fabric for it. There are a variety of options when it comes to using them in projects. Novelty fabrics are not limited to just quilts either. They are great choices for bags, pillows, clothes, curtains, and so on.

Show Your Wings Blog Hop

Thanks so much Carol of Just Let Me Quilt for being such a great hostess.

When Carol first announced this hop I knew right away what pattern I wanted to make and with what fabric. Feathers by The Pattern Basket and Sequoia fabric line by Edyta of Laundry Basket Quilts. I had both in my stash. I bought the pattern last year with the idea when I was feeling better I would try to piece it.

Dust Off a Book Blog Hop

Thanks to Bea of Beaquilter for getting this hop together.

For me this hop was last minute. I had signed up but somehow there was a mix up and my name was missed. But, it all worked out and I was added in around the end of last week.

Of course, that meant I had the weekend to get my project done. But, I was up for the challenge.
