Magenta Scrappy Zipper Pouch

I ran out of scraps that I wanted to use. So I made some more so I could make this pouch.

How ridiculous is it that I MADE scraps!!!

I dug out 17 half yard pieces of Kaffe Fassett Collective fabrics and cut a two-inch strip off of each one, then added a few pieces I had already cut that were long enough. I cut the strips in half and chose fabrics for sets of four strips.  Then I sewed these strips together, and cut into 1.5 inch strips on a 60 degree diagonal line.

Here’s what I ended up with.

I cut half on the right and half on the left so that the diagonal slants go opposite directions. This gives sort of a zig zag effect when they’re sewn together.

I made the pouch according to my zipper pouch tutorial, and I quilted the pieced panel with a simple meander. (note: in the tutorial, the pouch front and back are sewn together with the 12-inch side as the top and bottom of the bag. These pieced KFC pouches are put together with the 10-inch side as the top and bottom. So these are vertical, and the tutorial assembles the pouches in a horizontal arrangement.)

I’m going to make another one just like this but with royal blue polka dots on the top and bottom.

I’m really loving all these bright colors!
