Au Revoir Covid Pouch- Farewell to lockdown. This project bag re-purposes my face mask fabric--once cut out, but not sewn, now ready to serve as a pocket.
French ticking, small ginghams, tulips and cherry blossoms. Many new fabrics from @spoonflower, my first (wonderful) experience with them.
This bag is sewn entirely by Quilt As You Go with my mother-in-law’s 1957 Singer 401A Slant-o-matic.
This drawstring bag or pouch is ideal as a project bag -- knitting, sewing, etc.) or go-anywhere bag. Traditionally these "Boro" bags were repaired and strengthened for extended use with hand-stitching and adding patchwork fabrics. This one begins it's life sturdy.
Seams are pinked and double sewn. The bag is topstitched on the opening edge, and the lining is tacked in the corners. Many hours (lovingly) go into producing this 7 x 7" pouch. Pattern by Karen Stevens, copyright @2018. @kzstevens
