Patchwork Quilted Pouch

A patchwork quilted pouch is a fun way to use up those small fabric scraps.  Patchwork is back in trend in a huge way.  It’s all over the cat walks for clothing and accessories.  Learn how to create a new fabric from old using those traditional skills of re-use, re-make, recycle.

These patchwork quilted pouches are all unique so make a lovely gift, especially when embellished with some vintage lace or a motif from another piece of fabric.

Course description

What’s covered:

  • choice of colour palette:  we’ll look at a variety of colour combinations and how to choose a striking palette.
  • cutting fabric, taking pattern placement into account.
  • making patchworks panels.
  • Sewing in an exposed zip
  • making quilted panels
  • adding applique using zig-zag or free-motion embroidery

Who is this aimed at?

Level:  Intermediate. You’ll need confident sewing skills. Previous free-motion experience will be an advantage.

Course arrangements

You will need a selection of fabric scraps in the colours you’d like to work in, a zip and some cotton low-loft wadding.  You’re welcome to raid my scrap box but I don’t guarantee that I’ll have specific colours. I will provide the wadding and a choice of zip. The emphasis of this project is on recycling so please try to re-use scraps, home textiles (bedding or clothing), charity shop finds and not to buy new.

You can bring your own sewing machine or let me know when you book  if you need me to prepare one for you to use in the studio. If you are bringing your own, then you’ll need the accessories (presser feet), bobbins, instruction manual, and please check that you have your power cable/foot control. You will need a zip foot.
