From the Heart Blog Hop


Welcome to day three and the final day of the From the Heart Blog Hop,
hosted by Carol of Just Let Me Quilt.

It has been fun seeing the inspirational gift ideas these past couple days and today I am adding these jewelry pouches to the list and I will be Giving two of them away!! More about that at the end.  Thank you from the bottom of my heart to those of you who always come back to see what I'm up to.

I have made these before as gifts. They are quick to sew up and fun to make out of different fabrics.

When I first made these years ago I used a pattern from Quilting Art Gifts Magazine from 2009, but there are several tutorials online you can use if you are itching to make one. The tutorials differ slightly in dimensions, but when sewn up they all look pretty similar. 

Here are a few links to some tutorials I found:

Sewfrench = Jewelry Pouch

Melanie Kham - Travel Jewely Pouch

You can also find some good tutorials on You Tube.  Just search Jewelry Pouch Tutorial

When I decided to make the jewelry pouch the plan was to only make one, but when I pulled out the main floral fabric there was only about 3/4 of a yard left so I decided to use up as much as I could.

I was able to get enough big circles and enough small circles to make three pouches. 

 That left a small amount of fabric that I folded up and put with my scraps.

For the lining fabric, I decided to go with three different colors: purple, teal, and green, making them all similar yet different .

I have a special someone in mind to give the teal one to, but if you liked to have the purple or green lined pouch leave a comment below. I am going to give one away here and one on my Instagram feed: @quilteddelights 
So if you want two chances to win visit both places.

I will pick a winner at random Sunday Nov 1.
