A sewing pouch for Miss Luella...

Simply Miss Luellas' Deborah is a wonderful friend, and it was her birthday last week!!  What does a quilter make for an even better quilter for her birthday?  A sewing pouch!!
This project was so much fun to make!  Here again, I had no pattern to follow, but knew what I wanted to make. 
I knew that I wanted a pocket for her glasses on one side and her scissors on the other....
I have been admiring every one's circular quilting, so I thought that this fabric lent itself to a circle! 

What is a sewing kit without a needle book?
Closing up the side seams.  You can really get a feel for the circular quilting!
Turn, baby, turn...
While I was taking this picture, a butterfly flew into the frame about 1/3 in on the bottom left side!

Here are the stats....finished size is 6 1/2 x 3 1/2. 
Cutting stats............needle book - 6-3 1/2 x 3in pieces
                                outside fabric and lining - 1 ea. -  8 1/2 x 7 1/2
                                7 in zipper
                                pocket - 7 1/2 x 4
                                binding - 1 1/2 x 7 1/2
**you can make this as scrappy as you'd like.  Use your stash and your imagination!!!

Love the fabrics and the circular quilting. I love how you are such a courageous quilter. Not long ago you were only quilting straight lines. Now look at you and those fabulous circles. You certainly work circles around me! You go girl!! :)
