My creative space: Printed pouches

 Remember this fabric I printed a couple of weeks ago?  I chopped it up and I've been making it into yet more pouches.  They've been a bit of a learning curve - I realised the calico I made them out of wasn't quite strong enough, so I've backed it with interfacing. It's been fun playing with the positioning of the pattern on the pouch. 

 These ones have both got starry linings.

I've also been playing around with adding patches to them.  Here's one with a swallow patch.

How about you, what have you been making?  Hope you're having a good Thursday; it's sunny here and my day off, a good combo!

Joining in with "my creative space" over here...
