Fall Blog Hop

 Hello! It's been a long time. Work has kept me super busy so there's not much time to quilt but I wanted to join Carla's blog hop to help me get back into sewing for fun even if it's smaller projects than larger quilts that I normally would like to sew. 


Since this is a Fall blog hop, I pulled out fabrics from my stash to make a couple of large zipper pouches. These are so much fun to make and can be used to organize your essentials or use as a large clutch. I tried a new to me material for the lining. I ordered some waterproof canvas to see how well it would sew up and let me just say, it's a breeze to sew.


I used my normal 90/14 universal needle and my normal presser foot. Didn't have any issues with the material. I didn't use interfacing since the canvas was pretty sturdy. Be sure to check out today's blog hop line up for more fun Fall inspirations.

Great idea to make the small bags that will go with you throughout the day. Hope they bring a smile when you use them.

Zipper pouches are so handy to have on hand, for transporting sewing projects, or for gifts! They are quick too, so great for those times when you want to sew but don't have much time. Nice!
