|Fine & Dandy Pouch|
The pattern is very well done with lots of photographs and clear directions to guide you. It is a fairly quick sew and can be done in just a few hours. The directions are written for faux leather but cotton can be easily substituted as you will see in my Double-Up version further down in this post.

I used a fun faux suede for the exterior of my family passport version with a cotton-poly blend lining.

They are quick to make and so practical for anyone who travels. Make them feminine or masculine for your self and friends and make a few to sell.

Note the cool faux piping that frames the center. This is a great technique that Liz explains very clearly and lays out the steps to make it super easy. I added the embroidery.

The pattern includes two sizes: Large 8.8" high x 13.5" wide x 5" deep with 16 pockets and Small 7" high x 11.5" wide x 4" deep with 8 pockets. It has directions for faux leather and cottons. I made mine with a light weight denim exterior and a cotton-poly blend interior. Several were made in faux leathers with masculine interior fabrics for men.
The options and uses for this pouch are endless, make yours for men or women, for cosmetics or crafts, make at least one for yourself and make a bunch for gifts or to sell. It is really quite easy to sew with Liz's clear directions and photos. Even the pleated pockets are not difficult, they just require an bit of careful measuring and marking.

Until next time, may you sew with joy, stay healthy and be filled with God's awesome blessings!
