A pouch

 For Relief Society this week we are having a birthday party and have been asked to bring a wrapped gift under $5.  It is supposed to represent something you love, or is your favorite.  Since I LOVE the pouch Mindy gave me for Christmas I thought I would make one as my gift.  This pouch shows many things I love.  Fabric, sewing, quilting and a little bit of See's candy.  I tried to copy Pretty By Hand but was not successful.  My fabric matching skills need work.  Can you tell which square does not belong?  I should have put the squares up on my design wall for a day or two before I sewed them together.  Oh well, live and learn!

I have an update.  My friend Lisa was the first to choose a present.  She saw me bring mine in and consequently chose it.  She was thrilled!  It was fun to see this little pouch go to someone that will appreciate and use it.


  1. You are too hard on yourself, it's darling! And they all seem to go together to me. If I had to say anything, I'd say that light peachy one?? Or the blue? I dunno, I'd have to see it in person.

  2. I cannot see any patch that does not belong- you need to feel confident in your fabric choices because you are doing a fabulous job! I adore this sweet pouch!
