Of course my first finish is the one which had the least amount of work required to compete it...
|I already had two QAYG panels ready to go...|
You know how I love to add names to things? I had some time to waste during a recent hospital appointment so added a little stitchery and when I got home it took next to no time to turn it into this....
|A wide open pouch!|
I followed Noodlehead's great tutorial and it couldn't have been easier. I actually found it easier than a normal zippy pouch and the fact that it opens wide makes it so much more useful.

|Look! It really does open wide and is a great place to store those Rainbow Loom bands!|
Since I was on a roll and had the zipper foot out I thought that I'd try another new to me pattern
|a PinkxStitches Boxy Pouch|
Again, this one was made with QAYG panels of Aneela Hoey fabrics and the embroidery was stitched during the same hospital appointment.
This one was a little trickier to sew up than the open wide pouch but gives you a very useful little (or actually not so little) pouch. There are two size options given in the tutorial and I followed the measurements for the smallest and was quite surprised by how large it ended up being - there's room in there for one or two pencils ;0)

Nearly forgot to add that both these pouches were sewed up using Aurifil in a beautiful baby pink colour. I really love Aurifil - I was sewing through quite few layers in a few places and didn't have a single thread break on me!
So lets hope that this isn't my last finish of the quarter, linking up (eventually) to Katy and the rest on the finishers!
