I love patterns from Keyka Lou! During my nightly check in the “What’s New?” I discovered this fun new pattern. Off to my sewing room and into the stash. My collection of Sandi Henderson called out to me as a great fit for this project. I decided to piece the pouch front bringing together a handful of favorites.
Keyka Lou patterns are always easy to follow. The step by step instructions and picture illustrations make for fun, successful sewing. I recently purchased Wonder Clips which came in very handy on this project. They are perfect for the many layers in the final step of sewing up the pouch.
The pattern calls for a Velcro closure. I decided to try a “real” button. I learned that I have too much strength with a seam ripper for opening the center of the button hole. Next time I will cautiously clip with a sharp scissor to open the hole.
The design has a great pleat in the front. I love the style and how it makes the tiny pouch roomy.
Vintage buttons, I just can’t resist collecting them. This one is perfect for my notions pouch.
Thank you Keyka Lou for this fabulous set of pouches. I have so many ideas for them.
