At the moment I'm hand quilting the hexagons, Ive got about another five circles left to hand quilt.
The Rainbow pouch has worked out really well, I have posted you some pictures so that you can see what I've done and get a rough idea just how easy they are to do. You can do what ever you want on the leaf design. I used fabric paint on some old sheeting and just sewn loads and loads of french knots in embroidery threads.
If I make some more of these I will work on proper cotton material. On this pouch the sheeting was cotton plus polyester. I wasn't too happy that the fabric paint didn't go on as well but as this was an experiment, but Ive got a few tips from doing this.
This was the time consuming bit, when I didn't need to concentrate much or just a little bit tired sat in front of the telly, random french knotting was ideal.
I used gold material for the inside of the pouch. When messing about with fabric glue, I have learnt that its better to leave well alone to dry and place under some really heavy books to dry, to stop them warping. I hope all of you are having a nice Easter and manage to do something creative.
