Travelling Tula

I did it! I somehow found time to make a zippered pouch for the Sewing Summit swap and I'm so glad I did because it's pretty fabulous. I made a second pouch to hold my Farmer's Wife block supplies that I'm bringing to work on in transit.

I used a Tula Pink print from the Nightshade line for the outer fabric of both pouches. I bought it at the same time I bought the stack I gave away for my 100th post and have been waiting for the right project to use it for.  The square pouch, which will be swapped, features a turquoise Oval Elements print and my flat pouch used a gorgeous shot cotton from Westminster. It's purple with blue highlights.

I'm getting a bit nervous about my trip. I'll be away from Kivi and Levi for four nights! And I'm going alone. I won't know anyone. I mean, I have Flickr and Twitter and blog friends going, but we've never met in real life and what if no one wants to hang out with me? Everyone else is feeling anxious too, right? Yeah, I'm going to assume they are. 

See you after Summit! Wish me luck!

  1. Cute!! Have fun!! I totally wish I was going! Next year!

  2. I hate traveling my myself and work myself into a fit of nerves - but you will have a blast, and discover that all those nice people you interact with on the internet, are actually really nice people in real life too!

  3. Holy crap! You are amazing! I really wanted to make myself a little makeup pouch and I ran out of time. In fact, I'm too exhausted to even pack and my flight is at 1pm tomorrow...and I may need to run to the fabric shop before I leave... AND don't be crazy! I totally want to hang out with you! I'm getting in to SLC around 6pm...wanna plan on late dinner tomorrow or a breakfast date before the shop hop?

  4. Good luck! Levi and I miss you but we're doing just fine.

  5. What pattern did you use to make these? I love the fabric choices and I've been dying to make a boxy pouch/bag!
