Hello! I feel like it has been ages since I have blogged, and I guess it has. I've been busy stitching up a storm, plus the kids and I seem to live with a summer cold lately....yuck. Anyways, earlier this year I participated in the Triple-Zip Pouch Sew Along hosted by A Quilter's Table, and the tutorial for the pouch can be found HERE. At the time, I stitched up five finished pouches and cut out six more. You can see and read about my first five HERE. Well the extra six I cut out sat around for a while, but I grew tired of looking at the unfinished stack so I went ahead and finished them up. Not long after finishing the final six I stumbled across Stephanie at Quarter Incher who decided to host a Triple-Zip Swap. Well I just knew I had to sign up, how fun!
The basic premise for this blind swap (we have no idea who has our name) was that we were to make them a triple zip pouch and fill it with some goodies like notions, fabrics, you know that sort of thing. Well since I have quite a few pouches already made, I knew that one was bound to be the perfect fit for my partner, because honestly I made eleven pouches that were pretty diversified, one had to be her tastes, or at least I was hoping so.
The swap is nearing its deadline to ship and I haven't posted anything for my partner yet, so I wanted to make sure and add an assortment to the Flickr group and hopes she responds as to which one she likes the best. If not, then I'll make the ultimate decision, fill it with the goodies I have assembled and ship it off, hopefully later this week, or the beginning of next! My partner was a bit vague, but I do have a pretty good idea of what she likes just by looking at her Flickr stream, I have my fingers crossed that I am on the right track.
Not all of these pouches shown here are up for grabs, some have been gifted to family members already, I pulled four pouches for her to choose from (or the Flickr group members to choose from!) I just wanted to make sure I showed off all of the Triple-Zip Pouches that I made this year! Such a fun tutorial and great gift, I know there will be more of these pouches in my future for sure!
Now that the summer is rapidly drawing to an end and my oldest starts Kindergarten soon, I am hoping to share some of my finished projects in the coming weeks with you guys, I have so much to blog about and oh so little time! I do hope that once we get a good routine established again I'll be able to blog more frequently, fingers crossed! Until next time, do enjoy your last bits of summer!
