Description


This is my wonderful owl pouch from +Kruppcake - for the "Zip it" swap.  She definitely channeled my whimsical side- I love it- and it's the perfect size to tote along some hexies and sewing essentials!
 
 The pattern is the Open Wide Zipper pouch from Noodlehead  http://www.noodle-head.com/2012/06/open-wide-zippered-pouch-diy-tutorial.html   and she got it just right. Getting that zipper to lay flat was definitely tricky for me when I tried it but she nailed it and put the cutest little zipper pull on the end! 
 
Thanks so much Patty!

Kruppcake

I'm so glad you've received and like it. It was a fun one to make.

Kruppcake did a wonderful job! Love the cute owls and I love the interior fabric too!

One day I am going to take the plunge and conquer my zipper fear! Seeing all these darling zippies sure is inspirational.

Mymble

Thanks Silsbee True and Carolmarie - it is the cutest thing- filling it with hexies for the next violin lesson- it's amazing how many of those little things I can get done in 90 minutes;))))

Mymble

Kruppcake Thanks again- hope you liked yours too:)

Mymble

Terryt1955 She surely did- and you MUST dive in-they aren't as nasty as you think- and there are so many tutorials full of tips- you can't really go wrong!

Mymble I do love mine too. It arrived yesterday afternoon. I can't wait to take some photos so everyone can see it. It's perfect for my beading projects I'm working on. Thank you.

Mymble

Kruppcake Sooooooo happy- that was my idea- I'm a beader too ( when I get the chance!!!) so I tried to imagine what work:)

Mymble

Carolmarie I think I'm pretty standard in my hexie making- here's a link for just one of the great tutorials out there http://beeinmybonnetco.blogspot.com/2010/04/hexie-paper-piecing-tutorial.html
The very best info on hexie making comes from Japanese sewing books like Sweet & Simple Patchwork Gifts by Hisako Arai. The sewing is sooo precise- a bit intimidating actually but if you want really precise instructions that book gives them- both with paper piecing and without. It's hard to imagine sewing hexies without the paper pieces, but the author considers paper piecing a beginner technique and sewing the hexies without the more advanced way- talk about intimidating!!!!
One thing I have found that doesn't always get mentioned is use fine thread- even silk for sewing the hexies together- this makes for practically invisible seams- It's so frustrating to do all that work- flip it over and see little stitches showing-arghhh!!!!! Happy sewing!!!!

Carolmarie Oh forgot to say- I've got some hexie stuff on flickr- I'm mymble5 :)

This is the cutest lil zipper bird pouch ever! Love it!! thank you I am really enjoying it

Caa48

Caa48 oops sorry on the wrong parner ID page!!

Mymble

Caa48 That is so cute that we both got pouches from the same fabric- looks like we are on the cusp of a trend eh?

Caa48

yes i just love mine - i started posting and then realized i was on the wrong partner :-)

Kruppcake

Caa48 Yes, but we were partners in the pin cushion swap of 2012 though. I use my bird pin cushion all the time. She's holding my glass head pins right now.

Kruppcake

Caa48 Littlebitofbeads and I know each other. We bead together at least once a month. I love the pattern she used which is by Basic Grey. I guess great minds think alike. Too funny!

Caa48

well you both are very talented! and beading? wow = i just love these swaps and can't wait til we do another one!! :-)

Kruppcake can I ask the name of the fabric you used for this. I absolutely love it. You did an amazing job.

I love how you photographed it on the window sill. It is as if the little birds just flew in from the trees outside for a visit.

Mymble

Speattle LOL- I never thought of that- that spot is one of the best places to get pictures with true light:), so I tend to gravitate towards it whenever I need a photo.

Speattle

I have a dining room window with that same feeling and use it for photography too. We have even recently had the woodwork redone in the pretty white like yours too. I think that is why the photo caught my eye, because I love to take pictures in a similar type spot.
