In Saturday's post, I told you about these lovely goodies I won when Alison at Little Island Quilting had a give away.
Denyse Schmidt Prints - not sure of the range? But one of those specific to certain stores like Joann's me thinks.
I also told you how Alison had instructed me to make not hoard and how I was agonising over what to make. Today I cut into three of them to make myself a Keyka Lou pouch, like the one I made yesterday for the giveaway. They come together super quickly (which means you could make yourself one in every colour and fabric combination your heart desires.)
Won't this be perfect for spring?!
I love this pop of graphic print inside.
So Alison I'm not hoarding. I have been thinking a lot about why I buy fabric lately. I'm not really hardcore hoarder. I either buy fabric for specific projects - some of which take ages to happen or I buy fabric because I know it will be a useful stash addition for when I suddenly get the urge to make a bag or a pouch. One thing I do know for sure: There is something deeply satisfying about taking some bits of a fabric that speak to you and making them into something fun and utilitarian. Even better when there is some left over to play in the next perfect project.
Hope you've all had a great weekend! Oh and pay it forward friends: I've decided what I'm making you and the pattern is ordered... :-)
