A Zipper Pouch for Martha

I have a sweet, special friend who is one of the nicest people I have ever met. I had a lunch planned with her recently and I wanted to surprise her with a little gift. 
I decided to make her a patchwork zipper pouch because I knew it would be useful for her and this Boho fabric from Moda was just screaming  her name.  She likes red and she's really cool - so is this fabric.

I've been sort of "collecting" mini charm squares for some time but I haven't made anything with them.  Well, let me tell you - they are GREAT!  No cutting, just arrange them anyway you want, start sewing and ta da! 
When I was playing with the little squares of fabric, I realized the Noteworthy line mixes well with the Boho line.  Who knew?  So, I added a few in and arranged them until I liked the pattern.  Then I sewed them up.
I used this cool brown pezzy print on the back.
A coordinating zipper.
Of course, the inside of the bag had to be red.  I knew she would like this Ta Dot fabric from Michael Miller.

Inside and outside.
Sweet huh?  Just like my friend Martha. :)


Thanks so much for reading my blog and leaving a comment. I read every comment and try to reply to most of them although it may take me a couple of days - I'm a bit slow.
