The Half Square Triangle Pouch is a flat square-shaped quilted pouch with a zipper running diagonally across the front. This pouch is a great weekend sewing project for an intermediate. Get the free pattern at Craftsy.
I like to participate in craft swaps and this is something I made for my partner in a recent swap. She loves patriotic things and mug rugs, so I combined the two and this is what I came up with.
All done and I'll use a scrappy binding on this one. I'm always looking for ways to use scraps, so I'm pleased to have found a way that I like for using the bits left over from scrappy strip piecing. The next picture is a close-up so you can see some of the strips. Pictures & comments in Piecing 2015 Set 1.
