Sometimes I need a break from clothing sewing because I lose my mojo and/or my stash has dwindled, so I work on something fun that doesn’t require fitting, trying on, rethreading my serger, interfacing, etc… Maybe you can relate!
I wanted to make some fun gifts for my team members, so I bought this pdf pattern on Etsy. SO happy with this pattern, it’s very well done and totally worth purchasing, even if you want to just make a pouch without the essential oil bottle sized pockets!
I made two pouches and then realized my stash of cottons was in just as bad of a state as my stash of clothing fabrics (move to Hawaii and you will come to really appreciate the value of your local JoAnn store, no matter how crazy that place makes you right now!) So back to Etsy I went and ordered this beautiful stack. I have to say, I favorited that shop, Llama Fabrics because I love how she paired these prints with several solids that match it perfectly! It’s so hard to gauge colors online, so I really appreciated that. Also, my package reached me two days after I ordered it! Amazing.
I quickly made four more pouches with my pretty new prints! (I already gave one away).
This pouch has nine pockets, but can easily hold 14 essential oil bottles, 5ml, 15ml, or even rollerballs.
Good news! I’m giving one away, of course 🙂 I’m running this contest both here and on Instagram! For one entry, comment here with which one you’d choose (back, middle or front). For a second entry, go over to Instagram, find me @nikkischreiner and tag a friend in the comments on the giveaway post. That’s it! Contest closes Wednesday at midnight.
