SLMQG Pouch Swap

The Salt Lake Modern Quilt Guild (SLMQG) hosted a pouch swap between members at our May meeting. I used Elizabeth Hartman's Perfect Zip Bag pattern to make a test pouch first (the Amy Butler Lotus pouch below) and the pouch I took for the swap.

I used Ty Pennington's Impressions in Chartreuse with denim from an old skirt for the interlining to give it structure.

I used a gray zipper that I ordered from zipit on Etsy.

I added a zipper pull as directed in the pattern but I think it's too much for the smaller sized pouch that I made. Maybe if I used a smaller split-ring and D-ring, it would look more balanced.

At our guild meeting, we had the chance to either pick a pouch, all of which were wrapped in brown paper bags, or we could steal a pouch that had already been opened. I had to steal this pouch Leigh made out of Melody Miller's Viewfinder fabric! Isn't it cute?!

Each pouch held a $5 gift inside. I was lucky enough to get four fat quarters and two candy bars (Snickers and Twix - two of my favorites!). I definitely scored with this one. Thanks, Leigh!

Looks like you had a ton of fun at your meeting.

....ok, the word robot is getting super weird, and now there's a photo below that has numbers in it. Wonder what is going to happen when I try to prove I'm not a robot!

What a cute idea for a swap! Your "test" pouch is a-dorable - I think that one might be my favorite.
