Along the road to a new design

Introducing the Audrey pouch. A new design ~

This starts as an idea and gets (chicken-scratched) sketched.

Then it goes to a full-sized pattern trial.

It gets cut out and stitched and the final piece is subjected to my scrutiny to be sure that it looks like I intended it to look. If not, adjustments are made to the pattern and it goes back to the sewing stage.

This one miraculously managed to work out the first time.
New Design: Hepburn Pouch
That rarely happens.

Then it goes to the make up a bunch more stage.

One for my kiddo
Hepburn for tweens
and one for my Swap partner for the Pretty {little} pouch swap on Flickr.
Audrey pouch for?....

And finally, it goes to the pattern which you can download hereA big Thank-you goes out to Yeechi who digitized the pattern for me. Thanks Yeechi!

I hope you like it.  If you do make this pouch, please share your pics in the Trilliumdesign ~share it Flickr Pool.  Let me know what you think! I would love your feedback.

Happy Sewing!

This turned out so beautifully. It just goes to show how the simplest pattern can be made fabulous with attention to detail.

Is there a tutorial or just a pattern?

Jackie Russell said...

I just see the pattern not a tutorial. Am I missing something?

There is no tutorial - just the free pattern. Thanks!
