Modern Zip Pouches !

This has been a crazy busy week! Nina's first stage the Nutcracker of Southold Dance Theater just opened this morning. So we had three days of dress rehearsals at Morris Performing Arts Center, then there are three more stages Nina will be on this weekend. I will wright about that later this week, or maybe next Monday.

But I tried to update my Etsy shop by this weekend so I would like to tell you about it Today.

I finished two stylish modern pouches this morning and one messenger bag is on the way yet. These pouches have a geometrical pattern which is felt appliqued and embellished with sequins and some stitches. I partially used my sewing machine for making sharp embroidered line.

On the back, they both have simplified applique pattern as well. I added felt charms for the zipper pulls. Those pulls are fun to make and make the product merrier. I like to make them.

The sequins added some sharpness on the design. I am glad I came up with the idea of using machine stitches. I think it looks more sophisticated. What do you think?

As usual, thinking of what fabric I should choose for lining was so much fun. I used multicolored stripes print (Japanese cotton) for the light blue one, and one of "Good Folks" by Anna Maria Honer for the green one.

These pouches are now listed on my Etsy shop. There are more pictures will be on my Flickr pool soon. If you are interested.

I am waiting for some zippers I ordered coming in my mail box. Then I will finish up one more big project for my shop. I think I will keep myself being super busy by after Christmas. I hope you all have super happy busy Holidays too!
