A Unique Paper Pieced Notions Pouch With Fussy Cut Vintage Aprons.
Lavender sachets and vintage aprons remind me of those old country style movies where there was always natures bounty and true love. A cotton summer dress with a reel and thread puts an extra special feel on this notions pouch. The roomy pouch keeps small sewing projects at hand, with an inside pocket to hold notions and scissors. A lovely gift any quilter or sewing enthusiast would love.
The pouch can be made using a 6 1/2″ block with dress and cotton reel, or piece an apron that can be personalised by fussy cutting a motif and using it as a focus point of the project, in this case using it in the waistband of the apron.
You can also fussy cut to position a print in a desired direction which you can see with the apple print of this pretty apron. The apples are running vertical and are centered on the front panel. The apron is completed as one block. It’s creative and very easy to do. See more about paper piecing here.
The 6 1/2 inch block featuring a country style dress and cotton reel is the focal point of the pouch, however any orphan block, or special theme could be used.
The notions pouch with cotton summer dress, reel and cotton is available as a free pattern. The block for the vintage apron is available for purchase here.
