a little blog about crafting, sewing, nothing, & everything.

Zippered pouch porn..

Every post seems to start out about the same, so I've decided to start out this and possibly future posts with something a little different. Probably a little random because it tends to be my style.

First, random: Remember Marriedtothesea? It's been a couple years since I followed this webcomic, but today we reunited, however briefly. Their comics along with the original Toothpastefordinner, range from probably-too-smart-for-me to omg-hilarious. In any case, here's a recent gem:


I am still unsure of how to properly give credit to authors of sites and images without "hotlinking". So I have not linked this image. However, I hope it's pretty evident if you've read anything above: this ain't mine, it's Marriedtothesea.com's.

Now on with the update..

Another "art scarf" made while I was on vacation..









Yes, it's a little wonky, no judging. That's a geometric interior pocket you're seeing.

Finally onto the most recent addition:
(I'll probably have a tutorial of this up soon, but I need to supplement some photographs..)

Today, despite the amazing cooler-than-ever-imagined-for-Tennessee weather, I stayed inside and sewed. At least for a large chunk of it. (wtf, I know.)

This is what I came up with: probably my favorite rendition of the patchwork zippered pouch. It's clutch sized and holds my cellphone, cards, dollars, and chapstick.

Measures about 4 by 8" and has 33 of my favorite fabrics.


You put stuff in this area of the pouch.

Tutorial soon!

Your pouches are cute! I dunno if I could make one! :) I also loved the colors of the scarf, if we ever get to do a trade, let me know if you want handspun yarn- I gotta lotta!

Hey! Glad to meet someone else in Nashville.

Stopped by your Etsy shop and loved it. These are too cute. Can't wait to see the tutorial. I have started sewing but haven't done anything with a zipper..they scare me but are probably not that bad.
