Patchwork Pouch


Have a lot of scraps too small to save?
Here's a free project from Moda that makes use of 2-1/2" strips cut 5" long.

The finished pouch is 6" by 2-1/2" x 2-1/2".
Just right for a sewing kit.



I'm thinking leftover William Morris repros.



Moda shows it in black and white
so you can imagine any prints in there.




I'm imagining Best of Morris blues.


You use half a charm square:
Rectangles cut 2-1/2" x 5".
Or leftovers from Jelly Rolls.


See all the instructions in the free patchwork pattern here:

Former Poet Laureate Donald Hall wrote a wonderful memoir entitled "String Too Short to Be Saved." The title is from a label on a box of string scraps he found in his grandmother's attic. A wonderful read, as is your blog!
