This Sketchbook pencil pouch was the last gift I sewed up last year. It was a fun one, too! I hadn’t made a Canvas Pencil Pouch in a bit. The project is nice and quick!
I made it even speedier by cutting the exterior using the lining template so it’s one solid fabric (instead of pieced). And you might be thinking, hmmm is that quilting cotton? Yes it is. I added a layer of a mid-weight fusible woven (EB woven fuse medium to be exact) over the SF101 (plus SF101 on the lining pieces). I think it turned out pretty good. There were a few wrinkles on the exterior, but they mostly ironed out. The Ruby Star Society base cloth is fairly thin (beautiful of course!), so it’s nice to be able to beef it up a bit and still get to use it for bag making.
My niece sweetly asked me to maker her this pouch and I was so happy to do it! She said one of her favorite colors was green. This Cutouts print from Alexia’s newest collection for Ruby Star Society, called Sketchbook, is absolutely perfect! I bought almost the whole collection when I visited Ann at Stitch Supply Co. last month. Couldn’t resist another gorgeous collection from Alexia.
