From The Heart Blog Hop

This week has already been fantastic and very inspiring, with so many new ideas in this blog hop from Carol at Just Let Me Quilt. Today is my day, and I hope I can tempt you to make a little sweet drawstring pouch. Actually you can make them in all sizes, but I like this size for my phone and computer chargers. And as usual, I had to make a scrappy pincushion. I also love to show you my beautiful country in autumn colours.

 I started with two 5"x6,5" pieces of fabric. You also need insides the same size. I wanted to use a mini log cabin block on the front, but you can also just applique something like you can see here.

I sew the pocket for the drawstring to the front to hold it in right position when I fasten the inside.

Then I fasten the inside of the pouch, right sides together, to the upper part of the front and back.

Then I sew the two parts right sides together. Leave a 2" opening in the middle of one side of the inside pieces, so that you can turn it after sewing. But before turning, you have to do the next steps.

Cut a 1" square from the bottom of both the outside and inside.

Sew all four corners before you flip the bag right side out through the opening you left in one side.

Close the opening in the inside by sewing close to the edge.

To secure that the inside is staying inside, just sew a seam around the bag. That way you also secure the drawstring pocket one more time.

What's left is to find the right drawstrings. I used silk ribbons for my bag, about 14" for each of them. Ready to put it into use.

For my scrappy star pincushion I used 1,5" squares. I love a wonky star with scrappy middle.

Be sure to visit my fellow participants today to find more ideas for presents from your heart. The rest of the list you can find here. Thank you Carol for this nice and useful blog hop.
