A Sewless week and a commission

The past week has marched on relentlessly. I haven't done any sewing as I have had visitors all week and the sewing had to be put to one side.
In October, I was asked my someone whether I would make a zippy pouch for her to give as a Christmas present for her daughter. She had seen this purse that I had made for myself.

I really enjoyed making this wee pouch with linen and left overs of a jelly roll. My friend wanted me to use some scraps of Cath Kidson material that she had used in decorating her daughter's bedroom.
This is what I came up with.

As I still had a few scraps to play around with I decided to make a little Zakka pencil case too.

So this got me thinking… perhaps I could make a few more of these for Christmas presents… Watch this space!
