This is technically our February Quilt finished by Stephanie.

For this one, Stephanie told us a size and that the block needed to be bright colors with a white background. Otherwise, the design was up to us. I loved how she incorporated the little triangles between the blocks!

These are the blocks I made. She ended up not using all the blocks and is going ot make a baby quilt to go along with it. Can’t wait to see that one!

This one is the same paper piecing pattern I used for one of my place mats, called Mini Trajectory by Simply Cotton. It’s a free pattern on Craftsy!

La Petite Pouch

La Petite Pouch! The name just sounds so fancy doesn’t it??? Ah, it makes me smile!

PetitePouch-Main-ImFeelinCrafty

You might remember this one from last year. It’s a Go To Sew Tutorial that I’m bringing home!

I needed a little special something to send to someone and I thought and thought about it. I almost just bought something. but then realized the error of my ways and decided to make something. And that’s where the La Petite Pouch was created!

I’ll tell you how I made it! It’s pretty simple! Ready?

PetitePouch-End-ImFeelinCrafty

Let’s get our Materials: Fabric, thread, snaps (or buttons or Velcro…) and a cutter. You can also use interfacing to give it a little more stability.

PetitePouch-Step1-ImFeelinCrafty

Step 1: Cut your pieces. 2 pieces for the flap that are 3in x 6.5in. And 2 pieces for the pouch that are 4.5in x 16.5in.

PetitePouch-Step2-ImFeelinCrafty

Step 2: Assemble the flap. Sew together the two flap pieces, right sides together. But be sure to only sew three sides. The turn it right side out and press.

PetitePouch-Step3-ImFeelinCrafty

Step 3:  Start assembling the pouch. Take one pouch piece, fold it in half and iron a little spot at the center. This pressed piece is only for locating the flap! Open the pouch piece flat and center the flap on one side of the center. And pin.

PetitePouch-Step4-ImFeelinCrafty

Step 4: Sandwich the three pieces together. Pouch pieces right sides together with the flap in the middle. Sew along the top long length of the pouch pieces.

PetitePouch-Step5-ImFeelinCrafty

Step 5: Open the pouch pieces and fold over. Short sides of the pouch pieces to the short sides of the pouch pieces. And then sew along the two short sides.

PetitePouch-Step6-ImFeelinCrafty

Step 6: Sew the bottom of each pouch piece. And don’t forget to leave a hole on the lining side!

PetitePouch-Step7-ImFeelinCrafty

Step 7: Miter each corner. Align the side seam with the bottom seam so that it makes a triangle and then sew across. I made it so that the sewn line across was about an inch. Then clip the corners!

PetitePouch-Step8-ImFeelinCrafty

Step 8: Pull Through.

PetitePouch-Step9-ImFeelinCrafty

Step 9: Sew closed the hole in the lining.

PetitePouch-Step10-ImFeelinCrafty

Step 10: Topstitch.

PetitePouch-Step11-ImFeelinCrafty

Step 11: Add your closure. I used my favorite Babyville snap set. But you can use and kind of snaps, buttons, Velcro or any other closure you can think of!

And Viola! You have a La Petite Pouch! Did you notice my switch-a-roo? I changed to orange snaps right at the last-minute!

So what would you use your La Petite Pouch for??
