A gift for me...part two

Time to assemble the pouch.  Trim away the extra batting and square the front, back and linings to the same size.


Stitch the outside pieces together ~~ 1/4" seam ~~ across the bottom and then press the seam open.
Stitch the lining across the bottom, leaving an opening for turning.  Press your seam open.
Pin the case together around the entire perimeter of the pouch and then stitch using a 1/4" seam allowance.
Clip the corners and then
turn the pouch right side out by pulling the outside through the opening in the lining.
I stitched very close to the edge on the outside of the bag.....less than 1/4"....to hold everything in place.
Change the needle in your machine to either a denim needle or a 90/14.  You will be stitching through several layers and you don't want to break your needle.  (Ask me how I know your needle could break.)
Matching the sides of the bag, fold the bag in half and then stitch down both sides of the pouch, re-enforcing the stitching at both the beginning and the end.
I started about 2" down from the top.
Turn the pouch right side out and you are ready to go......well as soon as you have slip-stitched the opening in the liner.  The way the 3" squares were set will give you a design that
                                                    flows around the entire pouch
Ready for holidays
