Evening in the Garden Quilts

Adventures in Fabric Art

One More Finish Today



I did it!  For some reason, I had to drag myself kicking and screaming the whole way, but I made the first boxy pouch!  This is for me, maybe to hold electronics cords, but mosty to work through the process.  And it was easy!  This is a very good tutorial.  It took longer because it is lined, but it would be a snap to do from laminate or maybe pre-quilted fabric.  I made the handle more narrow, and may go thinner next time.  I would definitly add a second pull tab.  And I’m thinking that both handle and pull tabs could be made of brightly colored webbing.


I know, the crust doesn’t belong on the inside, but I didn’t want a tan bag!  Still cute.  I used a brown zipper so as not to use up one of my fun colors, but I like it.  With the pieces already cut and interfaced, it took a bit over an hour.  I know the rest will be quicker.

Linking up with Finish it up Friday at Freshly Pieced.

  1. I made them from oilcloth too, they’re great fun, but yes I agree a tab at the other end would be a good idea
