Something Practical

I have many wave landscape patchwork pieces. Some are for the exhibition which I will be having with my students and many are samples for classes. Most of them I gift but sometimes I use the quilted patchwork fabric to create other products.


I had that large 4 season piece which I had not yet quilted and backed and I decided to make 2 zippered pouches out of it.


Zippered pouches are things that one can never have too many of. I find hundreds of uses for them. They are a gift in themselves but perfect to be used as a gift wrap as well.

I cut the large piece into 2 large rectangles. Backed them with some flannel sheeting and quilted them.



I used some scraps to create tassels for zipper pulls.

They add a boho touch to the pouches.

The original patchwork piece was a flow of the 4 seasons so each side of the pouches had different shades of fabric.


There is a detailed tutorial teaching how to make a lined zippered pouch here
