I decided to make a new pouch to carry in my suitcase and I used some screen print batiks from Island Batik.

I also decided to try a technique I haven’t done in a while. I think the first time I ever did something like this was with a book by Ricky Tims.

Lorrie from This Thing has a great Interleave Quilt Tutorial that I used for the fabric for this little pouch. Small projects are always the best for experiments. I decided to do the easiest design first. I used fat quarters and I’ll admit that I didn’t pay attention to the way I laid out my huge half square triangles and my first several cuts were wrong.

I decided to cut my strips 1 1/4 inch instead of 1 inch. You can see how you add one strip from each of the half square triangles. Here directions are really good.

My piece isn’t very big but it gives you an idea of the design. Using two different black fabrics didn’t give me the contrast I was hoping for but it works great in the pouch.

My pouch is approximately 6″ x 14″. I also cut a 1/2 strip of the yellow and attached it to the zipper so it is easier to open. Here is how it looks on one side……

and here is the other side.

I still have some of the batiks left and I’m seeing a barn out of the red and maybe bumble bees from the yellow and blacks. So….do you like the design? Be sure and check out her tutorial!
