"B" is for Blingy Letter Pouch

Sew: blingy sequined pouch

I amped up the bling by sewing multiple sized sequins and beads onto a single letter in a coverall fashion and then making it into a zippered pouch:

The exterior is drop cloth canvas with a coordinating gingham lining:

I probably could've placed the letter a tiny bit higher on the pouch - next time:

Here's how to make the blingy sequined pouch:

1. Supplies (for one pouch):

1 - drop cloth exterior 11" x 14"
1 - gingham cotton lining 11" x 14"
1 - med. weight fusible interfacing 11" x 14"
1 - 10" zipper
1 - fabric letter (I used Georgia font at 300 point - full tutorial here)

2. Apply interfacing to wrong side of drop cloth.
Center and pin letter to front half:

3. Zig zag stitch around edge, tight and narrow.

4. Sew multiple sized sequins and beads to cover entire letter:

 5. Now sew in zipper and lining following my tutorial here.

I LOVE these! Would you consider doing a custom order for 5 of them?

These are so cute. I'm pinning for when I'm feeling brave enough to sew zippers.

So cute! I just love the monograms the way you've done that and they go so well with the gingham inside - just beautiful!
