New and Elegant Zipper Pouch with Faux Swade Bottom

Faux Swade Bottom Zipper Pouch
Lately I've been crocheting a lot of squares for my rainbow blanket (using Moogly's pattern). I'm almost done making all the squares and soon I'll start joining them together. I'll be posting a different post about my progress there, but since I was so occupied with the crochet and given the ammount of sqaures needed to be done (88, but who's counting), I wanted a little project that will clear my mind. I knew it had to be a sewing project because sewing is usually quicker than crocheting and I needed to start and finish something in two hours max.

Now, this is the time to let you all in on a little secret. In my little studio I have a box lying in the corner with many many pieces of faux swade in any kind of color you can imagine, and for a long period of time I've been wanting to do something with them. So, I managed to combine my urge for a sewing project and my not-so-little box of faux swade pieces, and designed a zipper pouch with a faux swade bottom. Since the faux swade has a sophisticated look and feel, I combined it with a textured fabric in cream to keep the design cool and elegant. I like my pouches to be fully lined. I think it gives the pouch a more complete effect, so I lined the pouch with a neutral crem cotton. I used a zipper in a matching color to finish off the look and I was done.

I have now plenty of ideas for color and fabric combinations and will soon start making other pouches and bags. Hope I'll have time to finish off my rainbow blanket :)

The faux swade bottom zipper pouch is available at my shop.
