Pouches Pouches Everywhere!

Saturday was a great day! My husband took our daughter Claire out for the day to give me some time to focus on sewing. Things have been hectic around here lately with my in-laws from Japan visiting and my husband doing contract work for three animation companies! I had an amazingly productive day and finished a bunch of pouches for my SHOP. I will be adding more pouches, tape measures and other goodies to my shop in the next couple weeks. Here are some of the finished pouches and you can see more of them in my Flickr gallery...

This little pouch is finally back from its long jorney to North Carolina, USA. It will be featured along with my pattern in Lark Book's Pretty Little Purses & Pouches due out in November! This particular pouch is now available in my shop as well!

Enjoy your afternoon tea & quilted crafts :o)


  1. Hi Lorraine !
    Oh wow wow wow ... all these yummy pouches are to die for !! You did a splendid job again & again ! :) I've fav'ed one of them at your shop ... ;)
    Isn't it practical when our hubbies take care of the children so we can have a bit of time to craft ?! LOL
    Have a great week ! :) Thanks for sharing all these delicious photos !

  2. Lettie of Polka Dot Pineapple mentioned your blog a few weeks back and I was impressed then. I'm even more impressed now! I'm not a crafter at all, just curious about things other than normal blogging but your work is so inspiring that it makes me want to sit down to a cup of tea and some dainty sweets. Eh, I think I just might do's 3:30pm!

  3. OMG, you were really productive!!
    I can imagine seeing these gorgeous things together:-)What I admire most in your work, the way you can combine different prints, it is so specal and so you:-)

  4. Great work Laurraine! Once when I was selling at a craft fair on old lady went by my table and sighed: "pouches and pouches!" Later the same day it happened again! I think pouches must be something our generation has come up with! I couldn't live without mine!
