naughty or nice

I confess. I am a total sucker for zippered pouches. Give me a good purpose and I'm on it, making one.
I like to use two very different fabrics to create a naughty and a nice side.
Suits me well.
Thank you, Alexander Henry, for creating this awesome fabric line.

For the back I used vintage fabric inherited from my dear great-aunt Katie.

This one is used for small projects, like fingerless gloves or sox.
Large project bag is needed. Badly.
Off I went to the sewing machine.
Then, with stylish storage completed, I started knitting the vest for the girl.

The bag currently holds 7 balls of yarn. And the knitting.

Naughty and nice... again Alexander Henry, the cowgirls, on the back some vintage thrifted goodness.
Quite a difference in size here.

And now you have it all, this one I made a while ago to hold all my knitting accessories. The KNIT & PURL was stamped on linen.

I do have a sister in crime...a friend who equally appreciates a nice zippered pouch and here is her birthday gift made from Woolrich woolens and suede leather.

I have been contemplating this style for a while now, a combo of slightly felted wool fabric and leather made for eternity and this is a first.

Small detail of perfection is the vintage heavy metal zipper, the pull being some kinda 3d chain with a metal ball.

Cowboy fabric and some detailed stitching on the inside.

A good sunday it is.


  1. Wow! Your sister is one lucky gal! Those are sweet sweet bags! Love the leather and wool combo! You are such a talented sewer and knitter..... always inspiring! Appreciate the kind words today on my blog!
    Have a blessed Thanks giving!

  2. Ich liebe Deine pouches.
    Darf ich mir eins wünschen, für meinen Foto etwas gepolstert, mit kleinem Täschchen für Akkus. Zum Nächsten Besuch, im kommenden Jahr.
