a new pattern ... the pamela pouch

I know.  It's been a while since I published a pattern.  But the stars aligned and ... it happened.

This pattern started over the Christmas holidays when I was overcome with a desire to make something - anything - using the navy prints colours from PamKittyGarden.  I haven't worked with navy for a very long time ... probably in the neighbourhood of 20 years.  But there's just something about this navy that was calling my name.

So I played around and came up with this ... 

It took all of about two seconds for my daughter to call dibs on it.

Such a rave review got me thinking about writing up a pattern.  So I made a second pouch - this time with the aqua PamKittyGarden suite. 

Oh how I love love LOVE this colour!

I tweaked a few things from the original prototype and came up with this ...

I'm calling it the Pamela Pouch because I wanted to name it after my good friend who happens to be the amazingly talented fabric designer behind the PamKitty collections that I love so much, and because I have a thing for alliteration.

It's only available as a PDF.  Click here to find it in my shop.  There are tons of step-by-step photos to help you along.

One other thing ... this pattern is F8th friendly.  Yep.  It only takes five F8ths to make (plus the notions) so it's great for using up small bits of coordinates.  But you don't have to make it all scrappy like I did.  You can easily use a single fabric for the whole thing.  It's up to you! :)

Yeah, Pam Kitty anything is adorable. So is this bag.
I have an old tiny travel iron I want to redo the bag. The one that came with it is falling apart.
It needs a cute bag. I like this style, and of course the fabric is super pretty
Thanks for sharing

Can you please tell me what solid fabrics you used in the Christmas package quilt with the Little Joys fabric? I love the colors but have to shop on the internet and it is hard to get the correct colors looking at a screen. I totally love this quilt. Thanks.

Hi Carol, So sorry, but I don't know the colour names of the solids I used. I only know that they are all Riley Blake solids. I will say that most of the colours do not match exactly with the Little Joy prints. My advice is to find colours that are "close enough". I think you will be happy with the results. :) xo k
