Average rating: (4.9 of 5) based on 7 reviewspretty as a giftMade 2 of these as little gifts. Instructions were clear and I enjoyed making it.Was this helpful?Forget me not jewellery pouchI absolutely love this pattern. I made the drawstring all one piece instead of two which worked better for me, I shall be making a few more. Pity I can't upload a picture as it's so pretty!1 of 1 customers found this helpful.Was this helpful?Ideal gift makeI have made 2 of these in quick succession as gifts. The recipients have both been really impressed. I bought the pdf and only printed the pattern pieces; very efficient! The instructions are clear and straightforward. As a dressmaker, I relished the opportunity to use pretty coordinating quilt fabrics. I would recommend cutting the pieces in a single layer for accuracy and fabric efficiency. I used ribbon for the ties, which worked well. I also filled the pockets with chocolate truffles as the pouch looks best when filled. Now I need one for me!4 of 4 customers found this helpful.Was this helpful?Very easy and really lovelyI made one for my mums birthday. The instructions were very easy to follow and it came out perfectly. Mum loves it and so does my 5 yr old daughter so now I have to make one for her. I am going to make one for myself as well.3 of 3 customers found this helpful.Was this helpful?Extremely Cute & QuickI made up this project for a quick and easy Christmas gift for my SIL. Fits into a purse or bag very easily. I made view 2. I love projects that use up scraps and this did just that. As usual the instructions are clear and easy to follow. The only thing I did different was I did hand sew the drawstring openings up a bit as my drawstrings were wanting to hide into the casings at times and to lengthen the drawstring. Now I just need to get to work to making one for myself! :)2 of 2 customers found this helpful.Was this helpful?This is a lovely product!The directions were clear and there were no mysteries. I am doing mine out of batik fat quarters. Makes a great gift!2 of 2 customers found this helpful.Was this helpful?forget me not pouchAll is good except the part where you put the string through. The bare edges show where the material is supposed to kiss. I have slipped stitched that part but it does not look good to me. The pouch does not close completely. I just love the design but I have had some trouble. Instead of two parts I am going to sew them together so the insides don't show. Man I cannot remember what to call that part the string goes through. Brain freeze lol Again I really love the jewelry pouch. I am making ten of them for christmas time. At least. I have not sewn the purse pattern yet. I am sure that will look great but I am waiting for spring.Was this helpful?
