I've been doing a bit more stitching in an effort to use up some of my fabric mountain. These little hanging storage pouches feature on Debbie Shore's Country Kitchen project CD and actually come in three sizes. I started with the largest of the three but completely forgot to take a photo before I gave it away. However today I've made the medium and small ones using up some quite small scraps of fabric and equally small pieces of wadding mostly left overs from layering up quilts because of course I can't bear to throw away the offcuts, knowing they will come handy someday!
The hearts are simply raw-edge shapes stitched on with a straight stitch and I finished off both of these little pockets by making fabric yo-yo's from the same fabric and hand stitching them on with some ribbon and a button - yes I have a button mountain as well!! Debbie's patterns are so easy to understand and once the pieces are cut out the pouches are quite quick to make so I will probably be making a few more for the sales table at our next quilt exhibition. The lining fabric on the blue one is actually a good match for the main fabric but because it has gold patterns on it hasn't photographed too well.
