Two birds, one stone

I've been wanting to make a little something extra to send along with the doll quilt for the DS Quilts swap. I also have been sent a book to review for UK Handmade. I thought I should test out at least one of the patterns in the book before I wrote about it, so had a go at making the little sewing pouch. It's a really sweet pattern that can use as many or as few fabrics as you like. I customised my version by including a scrappy patchwork strip on the front, using up all the little tiny crumbs of fabric I had been hoarding saving.
I can't give too much away now, but I had fun sewing this up. It's really quick to put together and would make a great little gift, I think.
I hope my partner agrees!
