The Bellevue Pouch

When I shop for a handbag, like all women, there are a few things I'm always looking for.  I've found that bags that have lots of slip pockets and zipper pockets and dividers don't actually work very well for me - too many places to put things means I can't actually find anything when I need it, and usually the size of the slip pockets/zipper pockets/dividers doesn't quite work with my stuff.  I've found that having a few pockets works better for me than tons of pockets.  Now I still have stuff, and I don't really want all of it randomly floating around in my bag either, but a zipper pouch, separate from the purse (so I can pull it out and dig around in it) will corral all my stuff.

Over the weekend I made a new pouch for my handbag.  This is the Bellevue Pouch which is part of the Minikins set from Sew Sweetness.  This is the small size and it's actually plenty big for what I keep in my purse.  I used Free Spirit's Tokyo Milk Neptune and the Mermaid fabrics for the outside and the lining.  I fussy cut the outside pieces (I made them different because, why not?) and just followed the directions as they were written to sew the bag together.  It was a super fast project and in a little over an hour, I had a new pouch!

Here's a shot of the other side.

And here's the lining - goldfish!

The pattern is only available as part of the Minikins collection, but I think it's a great collection.  I will definitely be making more of these!

I like your "fussy cut" modification--very pretty finish!
