My First Frame Pouch

I must first say that I'm glad my first one was made for myself. I am going to make one for a friend and learned so much about these (especially attaching) that I won't make such a mess of any future frame pouches I make. And I do intend to make more, many more.

There were a few comments on the shoe frame I purchased. If you are interested in one yourself, I got it from the Etsy seller 3Dpatternpaper. Here's a link to one that is available.

I chose to use these lovely ladies, who have been waiting in my stash to be featured in a small project. I switched out the frame to bring out the green. The white frame will be much better with another one I have planned. Instead of using a fusible interfacing, I decided to try out a tip I learned from Nancy Zieman's show on PBS and bought duck cloth. There was the extra step of sewing it to the exterior fabric, but I do like how stable it is and it has no chance of wrecking my iron.

Way out of proportion with the frame, but that's what I was going for. I need to draft up a different pattern to use with the other pouches I have planned using this frame.

Thank you Becca for hosting this! It was the final push I needed to just make one. I kind of fear, like tattoos, that they will be slightly addicting. :)

I'm going to be taking a short digital break over the weekend. I have hit that point in the semester that my instructors seem to be piling on work. Plus, we were forcasted to be getting snow this weekend (now just rain, I guess) and I want to do a massive fall cleaning of our house before winter does start to set in. If it's going to be anything like what those in the know say, we are in for a long, cold one with lots of snow. Yuck.

I hope everyone has a great weekend! See you Monday!
