I’ve been obsessed with these marker pouches since I saw Lorainne pin them, and I am so happy that she figured out the details and posted a tutorial just in time for Father’s Day. It calls for some truly clever and fiddly construction. Of course, my stitching is not the precise perfection that her’s is, but I couldn’t have been prouder to give these to my artsy-fartsy husband for Father’s Day.
I mean really. Big Fat Zippy Pouches that turn into stand-alone pencil cups when unzipped? Pure. Brilliance.
Pouches always make great stash-busters. The black-and-orange pouch uses leftover wool melton (from my jacket) and the lining is leftover from Andy’s Color Bar Quilt (2wenty Thr3e – Kodachrome in Clementine). The white pouch is made out of a mystery fabric (linen-ish maybe? but super soft) that I used for an embroidered handprint pillow. I love fabric scraps that bring with them happy memories of projects past.
Other than that, I really don’t have much to say. Summer is keeping me busy with the kids (of course). I am still trying to find my rhythm with the kids being home all day and various activities popping up, but I feel like we are almost “there.”
