I mini-swooned again.
|Yep, thats a penny.|
This time I made it into a pouch, for my partner in the mouthy stitches swap. I tried to get a sort of colour wheel thing going, but picking prints was so difficult! I am seriously lacking in the tiny print department. Like with the gold seeds, one of my favourite prints ever, it just doesn't do it justice!
So the pouch is mostly linen, its about 9" square, with a 7" cherry red zip. I lined it in the same orange Moda Chrysalis print that you can just about see on the zipper tabs.
Oh the zipper tabs! This was the part of the pouch I was most scared of! And while they are not perfect, or perfectly even, I am pretty proud of how they turned out, considering some of the shocking ones I've made before!
I perled to my hearts content on this one, picking out the 4 primary colours (yes, I know green isn't a primary... lets gloss over that shall we?) around the outside and inside of the swoon block, and again on the back.
I really like the back. Its simple, just using a few of the left over teeny tiny HST's for a pop of rainbow loveliness.
There might be another mini swoon in my future, because I seriously love this. Can you imagine how great 9 rainbow mini-swoons would look together in a mini quilt? I'm not sure I have the strength for 9 more though, so maybe just one more, for a pouch, for me!
I hope my partner loves this as much as I do!
