"T" is for Tangerine

Sewing: a tangerine, color of the year, inspired pouch:

With a navy monogram and navy lining:

The orange was one of those fabrics I just had to have while out shopping,
it's Riley Blake designs.

The monogram is American Typewriter font, it is navy with a navy zig zag stitch all around:

And navy grosgrain ribbon on the zipper pull:

I made a matching key fob for the C pouch:

Here's how I made the pouch:

1. Cut the pieces:

1 - exterior fabric @ 10" x 14"
2 - lining fabric @ 10" x 7"
1 - med. fusible interfacing @ 10" x 14"
1 - 9" zipper
monogram fabric with fusible
ribbon for zipper pull

Fuse the interfacing on wrong side of exterior fabric.
Then pin monogram and zig zag stitch all around:

3. Add in the zipper, be sure to use navy thread here, especially on the topstitching.

Press as you go.
Finally press the bottom gusset in to make a flat bottom:

Another pouch, I just can't stop myself.
