Liberty and Denim Zippy Pouch

A few weeks ago I made a zippy pouch using a pattern from the book Sweetly Stitched Handmades and I just had to show you all the details.

This was made for a friend who’s favorite colors are shades of violet. These Liberty of London scraps were saved over a few months especially with this project in mind. Each square measures one inch finished.

I wanted to contrast the sweet floral prints with something a bit more bold and modern, so… What better pairing than Art Gallery’s new smooth denim in Indigo Shadow. I bought a 1/4 yard and it’s down to small unusable scraps now, time to get more. Think of  this denim as linen’s black sheep sister and use it in projects for added edge and a stylish update.

I just love the lining in this one! It makes for a sweet surprise on the inside. That zipper pull is actually a necklace charm that I got as a gift when I was a teen. I loved it then as well as now but hadn’t worn it in years. It now has a whole new life as part of this pouch.

This is the “B” side of the pouch, equally as pretty! I know many of you have Liberty you don’t want to cut into or some scraps of special fabrics you are saving for something, this is the perfect project to showcase your favorites and I’m pretty sure the world won’t end if you go ahead and cut into your hoarded Liberty stash 😉

And since this was a birthday gift I just had to stuff it full of goodies! Ruler and wooden buttons found on Etsy.

Thanks for stopping by!
