One of the items on my Q2 FAL list was a Lola pouch to match the needle book I've made (previous post). I was going to use the same fabric as the needle book, so this is how it looked at the start of the quarter:
In the end, though, the orange dot wasn't right, so I used the tone-on-tone print I used for the outside of the needle book and a big pink dot.
I also used some fabric glue to secure the zip tab before sewing the edges and I'm really pleased with how it turned out. I shall use that trick again!
I also used some Vilene foam interlining (Style-Vil) for the first time and I love the structure it adds to the pouch. I added a bit of quilting to each side of the seams (using Aurifil 12wt 1154) and was thrilled to discover that one set met on the bottom - total fluke!
And here's the final pouch, with the needle book in front of it:
I think they make a nice pair, don't you?
Until about a minute before this photo was taken, Archie was fast asleep, hence the slightly dopey look:

Thanks for popping in!
