I've saved this pretty cheater fabric by Atsuko Matsuyama to make something for myself. It was the best choice for this pouch because I can't stop looking at it everyday.
Embroidery is something I would love to learn well someday. This fabric was great for me to practice!
I didn't realise the most of the zipper part will be hidden but this floral zipper peeking through looks just as lovely too.
I used a simple brown gingham fabric for the lining. It makes the pouch looks very Japanese and very zakka.
This pouch is now my sewing pouch! I carry it everywhere with me. The handles make carrying a breeze (especially from room to room in the house). Look at how roomy it is. I can stuff so many things in one small pouch. Just my ideal pouch size with a giant capacity and functionality.
Definitely a keeper's pattern! I'm all ready to make another one very soon!^_^xxx
