I have some down time so I was messing around on Flickr, adding photos and organizing sets etc. and i found a couple of photos sewing related that I meant to share after christmas.
Some of you know my cousin Betz White who has published a few books and makes a career out of crafting. I saw this post where she made a cute box pouch from her new Family Cottage fabric prints I said "I can do that" and when her second collection of fabrics called Indian Summer came out I loved those even more and I bought a sampler pack and went to work making some. I played a bit with the sizes and corners so all of them came out a wee bit different. I gave all but one away for Christmas and I learned some new sewing skills along the way. (tutorial for the box pouch is here, Changes that I made: I used heavy weight interfacing due to the sateen weight of the fabric, and added a tab for zipping ease)
You can tell which one was my first ones (top 2) the corners are a bit wonky. These below were my last and favorite ones. I loved the flowers and wanted that one originally, but the blue/green had the best lines and more space. after serious debate I kept the blue and gave the flowers one to mom.
