Sometimes I just can't get an idea out of my head until I actually get around to working on it.
This is one of those ideas:
I'd been thinking it would be new (to me) to work on a round bag.
Envisioning some fun trim around the edges and some of my Amy Butler fabric stash,
I first went to Pinterest and Etsy to see if there were any similar pouches. I found round bags, but they weren't really what I was picturing.
This is one of those projects I just go for. No sketching out a pattern or thinking through any kinds of instructions or step by steps...
Maybe that's what all the days thinking about it beforehand are for?
I used a Fiskars or Olfa-(I forget which I have) circle cutter, and opened it up to a size I thought would be nice, then added some to the edges for a seam allowance....Cut it out on paper to check size, then out of the fabric.
I chose an upholstery type fringe that came in a package from the scrapbook paper store,
and stitched that to the bottom half. It probably would have been too hard to sandwich between the zipper/batting and fabrics...
I love how it turned out!
It's always so satisfying when one of those ideas works out.
I might add some of my buttons, and then this one will more than likely end up being a gift.
Off to make up some more : )
