This was my first attempt at this style pouch and it came out perfect. My first attempt at this machine embroidered applique too. I will change the colors next time. I running pretty low on rayon thread colors though, so that doesn't help.
This one is made from a curtain weight fabric that I think I got from Goodwill. It's so vintage looking, not sure if it is though. I lined this one with a floral print and added a bunch of vintage buttons to one side.
I added awesome vintage embroidered ribbon to this one and a birdie applique. I love the background fabric. I've had it for years and haven't wanted to cut into it. I think the birds a little dark, but I still like it.
This is more fabric that I think I got from Goodwill. I will cry when this is gone. It has birds on it. I added some vintage twill tape. I think this is my fave.
Here's the inside. I'll be nice and share where I found the instructions to make these. It's such an easy method and looks so professional.
I have a bizilion 8" zippers so mine are sized a little different. Just adjust it to whatever size zipper you have.
Oh, and here is a hat with some super awesome vintage, printed, Goodwill corduroy.
And Leo sporting some too big leg warmers :)
The pouches will eventually be in the shop. Putting everything on sale now to clean out :)
