Q1 FAL 2015 - full disclosure...
The Shetland Hap Shawl

Farmer's Wife Zippy Pouch

I put together this little bag using those four stray Farmer's Wife blocks I mentioned at the end of my FAL post the other day. I needed a way of keeping all my smaller rulers and templates together as they have a natural tendency to distribute themselves randomly throughout my craft stuff and much time can be wasted looking for the one I really need!


As well as making use of the abandoned blocks, I also used a reclaimed zip and a piece of baby-cord for the backing which was from an old skirt. For the lining I used a piece of cotton chambray left over from pyjamas I made years ago, so altogether a throughly thrifty project!


It measures about 30cm square and is padded with some fusible fleece to give the rulers a bit of protection. I added a couple of pockets to the inside of the front panel to house the smallest tools and made sure they are easy to find when I need them!
