Reindeer Pouch

I didn't follow any tutorials or patterns to make this, but improvised as I went along. It is different to previous pouches that I have made as it has no interfacing.  Instead I used a layer of batting which was machine quilted to the outer fabric.I quite like that its soft and squishy.


I really like the combination of fabrics, although I will admit that a blue zip would've been better (yes, I'm using my green zips from the op-shop again!)

I hope that my nephew loves it. I reckon its perfect for a little boy to store his treasures in. Now to make some finger puppets to pop in there when I hand it over.

What do you think? Have I done Cam's Reindeers justice?

  3. It's perfect for a little boy!!! The green zip matches the antlers on one of the reindeer, so it's a good choice.

  9. Wow and you didn't follow a tutorial! Great job.

    Making a pouch is on my to-do-list. I haven't tackled a zip yet, so I just need to get over it and give it ago! I have a daughter who loves treasures, so a pouch would be perfect.
