    August POM

    ~August~ Project of the Month
    Sign up until July 31st
    Mail by August 31st




    This months project … “A zippered box pouch”


    We will be making a boxy zippered pouch! Fashioned and embellished any way you choose. (Must be large enough to carry a standard size rotary cutter and other goodies)
    There are no precise directions. I only ask that your finished project be something that you would be excited to receive.


    If you’d like to join, please send a pm to me tlambing and include the following


    Real Name
    Phone #
    Email address
    Severe Allergies
    Can you swap Internationally?


    Sign ups will be open until Sunday July 31st. Names out soon after. You will have until August 31st to mail your project.


    I’d really like to keep this about the project, so I am going to ask that we not send extra goodies. This will help to keep postage down as well as helping us not feel an obligation to shower our partner with gifts. If you feel you must do something extra, how about writing a poem or drawing a picture or sharing a joke or even a recipe? I bet you can think of something!
    As soon as names are given, please contact your partner right away.
    Please contact me asap if you are having trouble getting in contact.
    Please continue to post on the thread throughout the swap. Let everyone know of your progress, post sneak peeks and encourage other swappers. It’s so much fun seeing everyones progress and sharing in our quilting friendship.


    I ask that you let me know when you send your project and when you receive from your partner.


    Any swapper that does not follow through with their obligation to the swap will be banned from future swaps and will receive negative (swap) feedback.


    ****Please make sure to read the general rules that apply to all swaps here on the quilting board****

    Think I would like to do this one. I have recently noticed that my pouches are getting worn out and I need to make myself one. Might as well do another.

    Just pop the name into google, you'll find a whole bunch of tutorials to choose from. They are really very simple and fulfilling to whip out

    Well, I did not get it done last night. I ended up sewing a star quilt together instead so I could clear the design wall so daughter can work on her bargello. Also, I do not have any fusible fleece. I think I am going to quilt up the sandwiches instead and see how that works. I will sew in the zipper, quilt, then finish sewing so the seams are finished and the zipper is hidden.

    I do like how it looks. Showed husband and he was impressed as well. This would be one of those scrap fabric ideas as well. I need to make several sizes I think. This size, from the youtube post earlier, this one is perfect for the rotary cutter, pins, rippers, stileto, scissors, and such.

    Note, if you do not have fusible fleece, a scrap of batting is perfect. I cut my pieces 1" larger for sizing issue, quilted only the outside to the batting. I did not use any backing when quilting and it worked fine for me. Trimmed and then finished as instructed on the video. This way the zipper is all inside the seams.

    Think I have to make some more. My thought is to put a yard of fabric on the longarm, quilt it up, and subcut. Then I can have some Christmas presents ready as well or send them along with my swaps. They are easy enough to make.
