Just popping by today with a quick show and tell. One of my dear sponsors, Star of Starlit Quilts, recently sent me some Coney Island coated fabric and this free Moda pattern for a boxy pouch. Thank you for sending me this fun project, Star!
My daughter Haley has already claimed both pouches. She will use them for makeup since they wipe clean easily. I can see more coated fabric pouch projects in my future. What great gifts they will make!
The original pattern calls for a patchwork construction, but since I was using the coated fabric I went with one solid piece. It is a bit thicker than typical quilter\’s cotton, so I used a 90/14 needle. I also used my walking foot because the coated fabric doesn\’t move as smoothly as cotton across your machine\’s throat plate. Those are just a couple tips from me to you.
Visit Starlit Quilts to get your hands on some of this fun coated fabric. Star is so helpful. She can probably set you up with some pretty colored zippers and other embellishments as well! Happy sewing!
