I made this little pouch for my mom using the same technique as this one, except it’s tiny so I quilted it with super thin batting instead of using the thick two-sided fusible. It’s about 4.5″ x 3.5″.
The fabric is Michael Miller TaDot, which worked out perfectly since I used the dots as a quilting guide! She’s using it for her fake-sugar packets. I guess this is a kind they don’t have at most restaurants?
So, does everyone know how to make these super simple pouches? They have raw edges (I overlock them), and you can’t use directional fabric because it’s just one big rectangle. There is another way to make them with no raw edges. Most of my pattern ideas are so complicated that I feel like some simpler ones might be appreciated, but at the same time I feel like the rectangular pouch has been done to death – although my instructions are generally more in-depth than most. I thought about combining multiple ways to make these, for beginners and then for someone ready to learn the “right” way. What do you think? Put it on the list or forget it?
