Yesterday I felt the need to make something quick and easy. Instant gratification. The Open Wide Zipper Pouch from Anna at Noodlehead was just the ticket!
This is the medium size. I used fusible fleece for the interfacing and it works great to make a sturdy, padded bag.
Recently, I had bought a sampling of Essex Linens to try out. I used a half yard in the natural color in my disappearing nine-patch quilt and here it is in the yarn-dyed black color for my pouch. My question is, to all you linen users, do you prewash or not? I prewashed for the quilt but did not for the pouch. I'm normally NOT a fan of prewashing (all those wrinkles!) but I felt it needed it for use in the quilt.
And who doesn't love art by a 3 (almost 4!) year old?
Jack was drawing rain and a storm cloud and by the time I got my camera it had morphed into rain coming out of the top of the cloud with "red hot" clouds above. What an imagination!
