Welcome to week number 2! If you’ve been following along on Facebook, you’ll know that this weeks post is a day late for a reason. Last night I had full intentions of making this little pouch but when we arrived home from my birthday dinner I was blown away by a surprise birthday party! I still have streamers and balloons all over my house so needless to say sewing and blogging was not about to happen! It was a great night and definitely a surprise!

Now onto the project for week 2. Again this week I use a pattern from I Thinks Sew this time it’s a little zippered pouch!

The pattern is for The Pleated Zipper Pouch and for this one I used the smallest style.

I love this little thing! It worked up in about 30 mins from cut out to completely finished. I lined it with a medium weight interfacing so it will keep shape but not be super stiff!

I love the fabric used as well! I’m a huge fan of big patterns, paisley and the bright bold colours. You can also see this fabric in one of the wallets I’ve made!
Now this little pouch has a purpose for now. Some of you know that I’m about to starting training to become a hairstylist. For my birthday I was given a gift card with the sole purpose of me getting my first set of sheers! Today I found my first pair and can’t wait to get started!

My new sheers! 🙂
The sheers fit perfectly into the pouch with very little movement so there is no damage to either of them!
Overall I’m very happy with how this little pouch worked out and how quickly it came together! I’m looking forward to working up the next 2 sizes in the future!

Later this week I will have a couple extra items to post as I’m working on a couple surprises for a few friends! Only a few more weeks and we will have a draw!

I hope you are having a wonderful start to the new year. Stay tuned to see what surprises I have up my sleeves this week!
