TGIFF! - A Little Something For The Bling

We had a truly wonderful Christmas, for which I'm so thankful! Although it's only been a week, it feels like ages since I got to do some sewing. I made a few handmade gifts this year that I couldn't share until now. I made a few of these little travel jewellery pouches using this tutorial



It's a great tutorial and I'd do it again. One thing I did differently than the tutorial is that I topstitched both the outer circle and the inner circle, which I find gives it a nice finished edge. Next time, I'd start the buttonhole for the cord at 1.25" from the edge, rather than 1.5" as the tutorial recommends. I'd also make the buttonhole a little smaller. I love how they turned out and I'm happy to say that they were well-received. I may just have to make one of these for myself!

Just getting in under the wire to link up with TGIFF! this week, which is with Shanna @ Sparrow in Flight

  1. Good Morning and Happy New Year.
    Just a quick, and much belated, note to thank you for your quilt shop recommendations re my trip to Ottawa. Had a nice visit at the kanata quilt shop, made a quilt with my friend's daughter, did lots of sight seeing, and learned how to geocache in your beautiful part of the country. I really appreciate your generous nature.
