Seeing as I seem to rarely have anything I finish, I am super-happy to share something I started and finished within only a week. If you take a look at my blog header, you’ll see the cute owl pouch I made for the Pretty Little Pouch Swap in the spring. Since I had all of the other halfs of the HST’s left, I put together the Triangle Patchwork Pouch from Patchwork Please. Ayumi’s design uses a rectangle-triangle, so I adjusted the dimensions of the bottom of the pouch and the lining to suit my HST panels.
If you make this, note that the seam allowances all seem to be 1/4″, not the 1/2″ she specifies. As per the book, the pattern is intermediate, and I would recommend that you have some experience sewing three-dimensional items.
I have never purchased fusible fleece, so I tried using some Warm Bond cotton-polyester batting instead. It holds its shape and stands up on its own–I added some cross-hatching to the bottom panel, but next time I think I would add medium weight fusible interfacing as well.
The best part about it is now I have a cute pouch to keep my hand quilting supplies in, instead of a sad plastic box.
