I did it.
I've just made another Sweet Travel Pouch. This time using Liberty Tana lawn. And I couldn't be more delighted with it.
But let's start at the beginning. Shall we?

Surely you love liberty prints as much as I do. Betsy is my fave - but the colours I love seem to change regularly. Neon pink have to be on top. But now l'm off topic.
Unfortunately they are pricy. Especially all the rare neon ones. But luckily you won't need much for making bags and pouches. Y-A-Y!
Take some of your scraps, add a zipper and some vinyl and you're all set to make a Sweet Travel Pouch as well.
All fabric for this project was kindly provided by Alice Caroline Fabrics.
Ohh and aren't those bracelets my daughter's wearing adorable? She made them the other day and now wants to have her own bracelet making biz. Hahaha.
It's such a fun and quick little project. And best of all - totally beginner friendly! If you can sew a straight line, you can make one. Or a dozen. As they might be slightly addictive to make.
But let me tell you what you'll need.
Materials for your Sweet Travel Pouch:
- some of your fave Liberty scraps - I love Betsy but any of them would look amazing!
- plastic zipper - top tip: I usually buy 10" zippers in bulk as they are so much cheaper and cut them to size!
- small piece of vinyl
- thread - I like to use Aurifil 50wt construction and Aurifil 28wt for topstitching (but that that's of course optional)
- and a Teflon foot to make your life a little easier (but again totally optional)
- interfacing - as I was using super thin Liberty Tana lawn, I decided to add some fusible interfacing to the backing (just to make sure it has a little structure) but this absolutely optional
And as for notions. Please, please, pleeeaaase always only use clips to hold your vinyl in place as needles will leave holes and you won't be able to get rid of them anymore. Ever. This is super important and will help you immensely create a perfect little pouch (without any extra holes!).
