Liberty Quilted Pouch Tutorial

Today is a double birthday whammy for me. My Dad and Aaron share a birthday so for the past few years I’ve had to scramble around for TWO lots of boy presents at the beginning of June. This year I decided I’d make my Dad something (no such luck for Aaron) and found an amazing tutorial on Stone Cold Comfort that I wanted to try for a quilted Liberty pouch.

We met Chloe from Stone Cold Comfort at our birthday party and are both big fans of her blog. It’s full of beautiful tutorials and projects to try, go and follow her! This tutorial was so easy to follow and I love how it turned out.

I used a classic Liberty print in ‘manly’ colours but then couldn’t resist adding a surprise pink lining. Who decided colours were gender specific anyway? I’d like to try a couple more variations out, perhaps doubling up the Liberty print on the inside or using some waterproof fabric for a wash bag.

Here are a couple of pictures of the constructions of my pouch, check out Chloe’s tutorial though for a much better idea!

You start by cutting two pieces of batting, your outer fabric and your lining then quilting your batting and outer fabric together.

You then layer up…

…and prepare your zip by covering the ends with a little fabric tab.

Slot your zip inbetween the layers then stitch them up!

You then sew up the outer and inner layers, fold it all the right way out…

    I love the fabric you’ve chosen – it can be tricky to find a manly Liberty print but this one is perfect! :) xx
