Some Noodlehead Pouches
I had some scraps of my sunflower fabric leftover from making my handbag and the floor cushion and thought they'd be perfect for making some Noodlehead Open Wide Pouches. Turns out I had just enough and I've got a tiny bit left I think I can use for another project on the 'To Do List'.
I was planning on making the lining waterproof to use them as cosmetics bags, but I was too impatient to find a time to go and buy some, so I just lined them with some yellow poly cotton I had in my stash. The bottom of the pouches is a yellow Linen.
I made the 3 sizes as Anna lists them in her tutorial because I wanted to see how big they were in reality. The sizing is great and I think they'd make great gifts. Such a cute little collection! Now that I've made up 3 in the sizes she gives it'll be easy to modify the sizes to suit. I'm looking forward to making some more.
Anna's tutorial is great! The pictures are clear and the instructions are nice and easy to follow. The pouches are finished really nicely too. I always love something that looks as good on the inside as the outside. I love the way the zip is put in so that the top opens up so nice and wide for you to easily see everything hiding in your pouch...guess that's why it's called an Open Wide Pouch!!
Now to decide what to keep in them! Have you made some Noodlehead pouches? What do you keep in yours?
