instant gratification in the form of a rainbow zip pouch



I got into a creative funk this week. I would go into my sewing room and just sit there, not wanting to touch my many works in progress and not feeling inspired to do anything else. I decided it was time to bust out of it, so when Cooper went down for his nap I made myself go downstairs and start sewing.

One of my more favorited mini quilts on flickr is the one that's in my header. I don't sew with batiks anymore, so I thought it would be fun to revisit the rainbow concept with different fabrics. I paired them up with a yummy black and white woven fabric I just received in the mail, which I love! The pouch measures about 10 inches square and will house my Prismacolor markers and a sketchbook.


It feels good to have something completed, even if it's a teeny something. Thank you for all of the feedback on my wall issues in the previous post! I'm going to talk it over with Rob, and if he's game, I think a quilt is in order for over the couch.

sometimes you just have to 'do' something. Anything to get the whole funk out of the way.

That pouch is so pretty.

Is there a reason you no longer use batiks? Just curious.

So pretty! I really like batiks! I know they don't have a good reputation in the modern quilting scene, but I really like them.

I love the main fabric. I'm very drawn to greys as of late.

Your work is so precise. I'm impressed with such things.
