Another rainy day!

I couldn’t stop using my Stitched illustration, so I made a medium size zipper pouch.

Finished size: 7″wide x 9 1/2″ long

Batting: I used ByAnnie’s Soft and Stable. If you want to make a sturdy bag and pouch that holds it’s shape, I highly recommend Soft and Stable. It’s thiner than other product that makes sewing super easy.

And I used Aurifil 12 weight threads for my hand embroidery for the first time and I love the results!


I attached the zipper by hand at the last step.

One of my Pincushion 2017 illustrations. And I added “handmade” as an label.
