Around Town Little Pouches


The weather has been absolutely crazy. We had one good, warm day and now it's back to winter jackets, grrrr. Seriously! It seems like there's no end to this horrid winter.  And, to top things off I came down with the most nasty cold combined with a cough that sends everyone running as soon as they hear it :( I can't even remember last time I was this sick, yuck!

As you can imagine, my productivity was close to zero these last few days, unless watching Narcos on Netflix counts as something productive? Yeah, probably not :)

I did, however, manage a tiny bit of sewing as my order of Around Town fabric by super talented Sarah Golden arrived and I just couldn't let it sit and taunt me, could I?


So, I whipped up these two cute little pouches and I absolutely love how they turned out. I used my Essential Pouch pattern - this is the smallest size and I used just a single piece of fabric instead of adding contrasting bottom. Super quick, easy, and oh - so - adorable !!


And now I want to make a tiny pouch in each and every print from this collection I purchased :)

What have you been up to? Any fun sewing projects? Or any fun new fabric collection you're excited about? Do tell.

Wishing you all a happy and creative Sunday. Svetlana

Stella Tote Bag (new pdf pattern)


Hello friends, I have a new pdf pattern to share with you today :)


This is Stella. 

She's a perfectly sized everyday tote bag featuring a wonderfully roomy front patchwork pocket, inner zipper pocket, as well as main zipper closure to ensure all your treasures stay safe and secure.


 I used leather straps to make my handles because I'm obsessed with this leather, linen, and patchwork combo, but the pattern includes instructions on how to make your own fabric handles if you wish.


I graded this bag as Intermediate Level as I think some experience making bags, piecing patchwork, as well as working with zippers would definitely be helpful when making your own Stella.


MATERIALS NEEDED TO MAKE THIS BAG: (fabric requirements are based on 42'' wide fabric)
fabric A (Essex linen for main exterior panels + pocket squares): 3/4 yard
fabric B (twill, denim, or quilting cotton for bottom exterior panel): ¼ yard
                                                                                        (1/2 yard if making your own fabric handles)
eighteen (18) - 2 ½'' print squares for front pocket
fabric C (quilting cotton for lining): 3/4 yard
medium weight fusible interfacing: 1 ½ yard
10 ½'' x 14 ½'' piece of fusible fleece
one (1) - metal snap closure size 20
14'' long metal or nylon zipper for main closure
7'' long metal or nylon zipper for lining pocket
*leather handles: two (2) – 3/4'' x 24''
(optional) 6mm or 8mm rivets: four (4)

As always, I'm offering this pattern at a discounted price of $6.00 for the next 48 hours. After that (on 4/11) the price will go up to its regular $8.00.
