Have you heard about the 

It's an awesome new swap started by Michelle from i like orange, too!
and Kelly from kelbysews.
ps...sign ups are open until April 8th.

So after officially signing up for the swap this weekend,
I had pouches on my mind.
The solution?  Make one of my own of course.

The front features a herringbone design using some
Midwest Modern by Amy Butler accented with
Kona Med Gray.

And for the back I opted for a simpler patchwork pattern
using the same fabrics.

Oh, and here is my inspiration mosaic for my partner.
Yummy goodness.

I didn't realize until later that I included one picture twice. :)
Must mean I really like that pouch, huh?
