Sew: monogrammed seersucker pouches
Summer is knocking on the door and nothing says summer like seersucker.
Finally I made a pouch for myself:
And a smaller more simplified version for a new baby boy gift:
The lining matches the monogram and I'm loving the navy zipper with the green, a tiny bit more masculine for the male set:
Perfect for the beach bag, pool bag, cosmetics or travel:
Here's how I made the pouches:
(for green 'r' version)
1 - blue seersucker @ 10"w x 14"l
1 - fusible interfacing @ 10"w x 14"l
2 - lining fabric (kelly green) @ 10"w x 7"l
1 - navy zipper @ 9"
'r' letter cut out
2. Fuse interfacing to wrong side of seersucker.
Pin letter in place:
3. Zig zag stitch around letter:
4. Place zipper face down on top end of seersucker then lining:
5. Repeat for other side:
6. Wrong sides together sew side seams together then miter the corners:
7. Clip excess from corners and turn right side out.
Press lining side seams open and raw edge up 1/2", straight stitch lining closed:
8. Push lining down into pouch and press:
This medium size pouch finished size is 9"w x 6"h x 1.5"thick at base:
The mitered corners make a perfect base for the pouch to stand on it's own and create space inside for goodies.
The larger size measures 12"l x 7"h x 2.25"thick at base:
You can bet I'll be getting some good use out of my new monogrammed pouch this summer.
