Scrappy Wonky Pouch
I hate throwing away little scraps of fabric -- especially if it's from fabric I love and let's face it - that's pretty much all I buy. I saved these tiny scraps from a quilt I made for my niece last Christmas (you can see that here). I just couldn't let them go. They are just way too cute. So I started sewing them together and voila. We have a scrappy wonky zippered pouch!
Pieces were sewn together to create vertical strips. Then I used the Quilt as you Go method to join together the vertical pieces of fabric making sure that the horizontal pieces were offset from each other. Each section of fabric was a different width and not sewn completely parallel to each other-- hence the wonky.
The inside was lined and the same fabric for the inside was used for the back of the pouch.
I think it turned out great. I filled it with a bit of candy (including the biggest Smarties I've ever seen!!) and wrapped it up for my niece for Christmas.
