"P" is for Punch

Terrycloth pouches with bright, tropical punch colored linings:

A custom order for a 75th birthday party.

Although apparently 75 is the new 50!!!
(Half had pink embroidery, the other half had green.)

A nice favor (it was filled goodies for the party) that's useful to the guests.

I did five with turquoise lining:

Five yellow:

Five fuchsia:

And five green:

But I think they look best all lined up together:

Here's how I made the pouches:

For a 12"w x 9"h x 1"gusset pouch:

 (1) terry cloth @ 13" x 20"
(2) lining @ 13" x 10"
(1) fusible interfacing @ 13" x 20"
(1) 12" white zipper
ribbon for zipper pull

1. Cut terry and fuse interfacing.  Send off to embroiderer.
Pick up completed pieces:

2. Cut lining pieces ready to go:

3. Begin by sewing in the zipper.
For a full how to pouch tutorial go to my post here.

4. Then side seams and miter corners, turn right side out:

5. Press seams open and stitch bottom lining closed.
Push lining down into pouch and press top edge smooth:

6. Add ribbon detail to zipper pull and ready for use.

Happy 75th Birthday!
