Peek A Pouch 🎊


This week I finished a fun make, perfect for a quick gift or to hold small treasures! It would be handy for keeping a few make up bits in too because it's made of laminated fabric and vinyl. 

The free pattern is Peek A Pouch by Laura Zuckerkuss, which she let me pattern test for her. Laura provides excellent step by step instructions and tips for working with these fabrics. The tutorial really makes it so easy!


I happened to have scraps of this gorgeous Loulouthi laminated fabric by Anna Maria Horner, that someone (so sorry I have forgotten who?!) sent me - possibly in a swap or giveaway. I literally had the perfect amount for this project, I had to be careful when cutting! I also didn't want to lose the lovely pink and yellow flowers completely because they are my favourite part of the print, so I put them on the back. 


I also the found I had the perfect zip, which matches beautifully! I like these pull ring zips, I got mine from Simply Because Crafts on eBay in the UK or I know Sunny Day Supply stock them in the US.

The neon kraft confetti also makes me so happy! 


You can see more of Laura's clever patterns on Craftsy! Thanks for letting me test Laura :)


I am full of cold at the moment and feeling a bit sorry for myself. Hopefully I can have a quiet weekend of hibernation and get some sewing done! Tonight I am finishing the quilting on my rose star quilt - I feel a little sad that it's nearly done because it's been such a long work in progress, at the same time I can't wait to take those basting stitches out and get it bound. I will be posting pics on instagram over the weekend, as well as hosting the Saturday Night Craft Along from 6pm, so make sure you come and follow me over there!

What are your weekend plans? Does anyone else feel like hibernating?!

  1. Thankfully the sun is out and it is a beautiful day in Melbourne, so I have already got my 12,000 steps in! Tomorrow I am off to a country fair with my sister! Sorry Lucy, wouldn't it be great to live in two different places so we could have Autumn and Spring all year round! Then no one would get a cold! Get better soon! Cute pouch BTW!
