Crumb Patchwork Pouch

Zippered pouches are my go to gift. They are practical and pretty. I created a zippered crumb patchwork pouch to be gifted together with the crumb patchwork quilt for the new born baby.

The pouch is quite a large one and can hold a diaper or two and some lotion and baby wipes.

I created 2 rectangles using scraps from the quilt fabric.

I found a matching zipper in my boxes of upcycled zippers. Created a handle and cut 2 rectangles out of the blue sheet for the pouch lining.

I ironed the 2 crumb rectangles and then created "sandwiches" with lining piece, a batting piece and the patchwork top.

I then quilted a grid over both rectangles
