Friendly Gift Swap

Posted on October 20, 2015 by Jenn Thurston | 2 comments

I met some great friends at some of the previous The Stash Bash, unfortunately I wasn't able to go to the most recent one this weekend.  Lucky for me our store is right on the way for one of my friends traveling to The Stash Bash, so she had no choice but to swing by! 

We decided a few weeks ago to do a fun little swap.  Whatever we felt like making for each other was just perfect.  I recently ran into some fantastic scraps, which I think I'll be making into some scrap packs for the store soon!  I used Pure Elements White Linen by Art Gallery for the background, and let me tell you… if you have never worked with Pure Elements you are missing out!  It is so soft and silky, I think I may just make it my go-to background of choice now! 

I of course started to make something for the swap the night before we were supposed to meet.  

I decided on Dwell Mini by Thimble Blossoms, but the more the night progressed into the later hours, the more logic sunk in that I wouldn't get the whole wall hanging done in time.  So, I improvised; instead of a wall hanging, I decided to make it into a pouch.

I absolutely love how it turned out, I hope she does too!  I quilted the front and the back with straight line stitching to give it more stability, it stands up without any effort at all. 

Fabric:  Scrap Pack, background is Pure Elements White Linen by Art Gallery
Pattern: Mini Dwell by Thimble Blossoms
Size: Pouch measures approximately 7" x 12"
