One project complete!

I have finished making a zipped box pouch.

The pattern came courtesy of these tutorials:

The outer fabric is a quilt cotton print I got from Lincraft. I just couldn’t resist buying something from the sale 😛 I’m also planning on using for the flap of a messenger bag.

For the lining I used a brown cotton from a cheap pillowcase/bedspread set ($4 for the set from Ikea! Great deal, the brown has a very nice understated sheen to it).

I didn’t actually use any interweave, just the two layers of cotton. I found it holds its shape quite nicely still and I immediately stuffed it full anyway ^^

I think in hindsight I prefer the americana pattern as lining, or an accent instead of the whole thing. For something this small it just looks too busy.
