{Sew} Modern Monday #41

{Sew} Modern Monday at Canoe Ridge Creations 

it's time for another weekly edition of 
{sew} modern monday!
pouches.

flickr swaps. they seriously get me every time! just when i think i'm going to take a break from online sewing swaps, another great one pops up. and the mother of them all is most definitely the pretty {little} pouch swap. it.is.fabulous.

so a few months ago when round 3 sign-ups started, i caved. it's such a fun swap and i love zippys--i just couldn't resist! this time around, my secret partner asked for a zipper pouch and mentioned she loved the look of linen and bright, cheery colors. easy enough, right?

i decided to pull some of the fabrics i received from the charm square swap at the sewing summit and picked up some essex linen/cotton blend at a little post summit meet up with Jeni and Deedrie. this was the first time i have ever worked with essex and it won't be the last! in fact, i am in process of making a few more for   my etsy store (opening soon)!

the smaller pouch is on it's way to my pretty {little} pouch partner and the bigger one is on it's way to live with someone else--but that's staying a secret for now. :)
