Mouthy Stitches Pouch Swap

I guess I should share my pouch that I made for the Mouthy Stitches pouch swap. It doesn't compare in the slightest with Eva's pouch, but I had a lot of fun making it! Want to see???


It was fun to "draw"-sew. Ok, I don't know what to call it, turning my actual drawing into a sewing project, but it was fun. I could do more of this. I was really nervous about how it would end up, and actually didn't have a lot of hope for it. But in the end I really like it! and enjoyed making it!!

Some close-ups:



Here's the back. I thought this print would be the most fun with it. I don't know.


My partner's inspiration mosaic was chuck full of these flat clutches/pencil cases. Some of the designs I definitely could have had in my mosaic, but overall her style was a bit different than mine. It made it a little challenging to come up with something that wasn't "me" and still come up with something that she would like. I really hope she likes this (I'm kind of nervous).

Here's the inside:

I put a little divider pocket on the inside, you know, to keep things organized. I'm all about that!

I also added a card pocket in case she decides to use it as a clutch.

It's big enough for scissors and plenty of sewing goods, or about the size as my clutch that I use for my wallet. Multi-functional is good right?!

I loaded it chock full of scraps:


And they are just that. scraps. Everything comes from something that I've used recently. I hope she likes them!


So there it is. my pouch.


travel safely little pouch. :) I had fun making you. 



  1. oh my goodness .... this is so darn cute!

  2. That is so neat! I've been watching the progress and loving every little bit of it! Very creative and pretty :)

  3. I love the design - so clever. I'm sure she will love it.
