Day 4 - Video
And here's the video for Day 4 of the Quilted Boxy Pouch Sew Along. Tab on the image below to play the video!
Today I am sharing with you how I assemble my pouch. I start with sewing all the layers together before boxing out all six corners. But see for yourself...
No fancy new materials needed today (or any other day for that matter). Just thread and a couple clips to keep all your fabric in place. Again... you'll have everything at home already.
But of course... if you're curious about some of the materials I am using, please have a look below for more details.
Thread. For the construction of the pouch I am using Aurifil 50wt in white. It's strong and won't be visible later on. My fave thread weight for piecing (on day one) and today's construction of the pouch.
Basic quilty notions. Again. Nothing fancy needed. I am using wonder clips instead of pins as they are much easier to use. And especially today I am recommending to use a strong needle (denim/ or jeans needles) for your sewing machine as we are sewing through a lot of layers and your zipper! You don't want your needle to break and you'll machine will thank you.
Share your progress!
And now the fun bit! Please share your progress over on Instagram (or Facebook) using the #quiltedboxypouch. We are now sooo close to finishing your bag!
And thats's a wrap for day 4. You done it! Tomorrow we finish your Quilted Boxy Pouch and then it's time to celebrate you! And your bag of course...
Take care and big quilty hugs,
