Pretty {little} Pouch Swap

I joined in on the 2nd round of this swap and today I finished the pouch for my partner. She said she loved Heather Ross & hexagons (among other things but those are the ones I focused on) and wanted a large pouch. I just hope this isn't tooo large. It ended being 14" long which is really long. I took a picture of me holding it so that you can tell how large it is.

Size does matter!

I do love the moons print from FFA2 that I used and I just LOVE the bright turquoise zipper. I think it just makes the pouch really fun.

For the back of the pouch I used the moons in a different colorway so really you can have 2 different pouches in one.

The inside lining is this fun Remix print that ties together all the colors of the pouch, well atleast I think so :)

I used this tutorial. I made the large size and didn't use the handles. The only thing I did that wasn't in the tutorial was that I did top stitch the pouch by the zipper. Next time I will remember that the medium size of this tutorial might be a better way to go.

Ooh, you're making those moons look good! I'm sure she'll love it and store extra-long thingamabobs in it!

The extra long-ness will make it great for traveling with a curling iron or straightener, plus a brush/comb. :-) My first thoughts when I saw it.

I bet your partner will be thrilled. This is the cutest pouch I have seen in a long time. You can always sent it to me if she doesn't want it......

It looks terrific! Fun fabrics, bright colours and a funky lining. The turquoise just pops! Great work, Ann :-)

I wonder if I could be so lucky to have you as a partner. Probably not! LOL! But I totally dig this pouch. Great job!
