pleated pouch playtime...

Yesterday was a day I'd set aside to work on a project that I desperately need to work on. So what did I end up doing? Making a new-to-me pattern by Keyka Lou, of course!

This is the tall one of the three sizes in the Pleated Pouch pattern, and I really did play around with it a bit. The pink and brown was the first I made, intending it to fit my Android. It was a little too small for my phone and I found the interfacing to be a little too light for what I wanted. But it's totally a beautiful little pouch for grab and go essentials... and I added a keyring so everything's together in one place...


So  then I added an inch to each of the pattern pieces, and also used fusible fleece as a layer in the second one. It fitted the phone perfectly, but was a little poufy to sew through. Another great pouch, though not what I was thinking. Love the Reunion fabric though!


But that's what I love about Keyla Lou patterns... they're totally adaptable and so user friendly, for any sewing level. Check them out... link is here and also on my blog sidebar.

Those are great and this reminds me...I bought one of her patterns to try then forgot all about it. I've been sitting here wondering what to make next. Now I know!

Really cute and I agree...that Reunion fabric is fantastic!
