Box Bag Pouch at Sew Can She

I'm guest posting today!

Have you found the Sew Can She website yet?

I am always on the lookout for a fun project to try,
and with free tutorials, you get to see
how they are constructed.

What fun to find a whole new site
that is positively loaded with great projects to make!

 Circle Zip Earbud Pouch from the Archives at Sew Can She

I was delighted to try out one of the archived tutorials,
and then talk about it on the Sew Can She blog.

{You know I never miss an opportunity to talk about sewing!}

I chose to make this fabulous Box Bag from Truly Myrtle.
I've been meaning to try making a box pouch for quite a while.

{Here's the original version, so cleverly made from an upcycled a merino wool sweater!}

For my version I took a deep breath...
and cut into my fat quarter bundle of Washi
by Rashida Coleman-Hale for Timeless Treasures!

Remember this post about how I won that fabric?

I chose three coordinating fabrics for this pouch,
and I know it won't surprise anyone that
I used the turquoise prints.

Here's my finished box bag,
and you can find out all the details at Sew Can She.
