Feathers and Flea Market Fancy

So, the Sewing Summit sewing continues.  I wanted to make a few zippy pouches to put my English Paper Piecing supplies.  I am slowing working on my Hexy MF quilt, and want to start a Spring Carnival Pillow at the Summit.  Even though I didn't get into Katy EXTREMELY popular class, she is willing to show people outside of class, she's a sweetie like that.  

So I took Katy's advice and made two large flat zipper pouches.  I used the Noodlehead Open Wide Zippy Pouch Tutorial, medium size, but just didn't box the bottoms (which is my least favorite part since I have a hard time matching up the seams).  I love how they turned out (although there was some major seam ripping happening with one of them because of late night sewing with wine!).

I used feathers by Martha Negley, which I purchased from a great Etsy shop run by the fabulous Amanda (A Crafty Fox) called Westwood Acres.  She's out of the feathers, but she said they are being re-printed!  If you have to have them now Tennessee Quilts still has them.  

I used coordinating seeds from Flea Market Fancy.  And then lined the pink with chevrons and the yellow one with Robert Kaufman Living Lattice in Marigold.  Two items for Sewing Summit down, a few more to go!  I CAN'T WAIT!!!


  1. I love them! And I love that you didn't box the corners. That would be my least favorite too so maybe I'll try that instead of following the pattern exactly.

  2. These are so cute!! Love the feathers :) I just made one of those pouches - it's a great tutorial!

  3. More cuteness - love the fabric mix and they will lay flat in your suitcase un-boxed. I didn't get in the EPP class but hope to catch some of the unofficial pop up time.

  4. Those are great! I recently made the same bags.

  5. Love the pink one with the zig zag lining... great combination. My least favourite part is getting the ends of the zip right.


Thank you so much for taking the time to comment.
