Two-in-One Pouch [A Finish]

Just after Christmas, the #stitchedsewingorganizerssal kicked off again and the first project back was the two-in-one pouch. Whilst I haven't taken part every week, this was one of the projects I wanted to make since the start, but I decided it would make a great gift for my Mother-in-law - we bought her a subscription to the Mandolin quilt for her birthday, so this is a fitting gift to go with it.

This little pouch called for vinyl, double-fold binding, and a magnetic snap. I'm getting the hang of the vinyl. I have developed a deep hatred for double-fold binding, and it was my first time using a magnetic snap. The problem with double fold binding, especially on vinyl, is keeping my seam allowance consistent on the slippy vinyl, which means my corners aren't great... And with this partiucular project, I'd like you all to ignore the fact that the lining fabric is upside down... speaking of fabric, the outside of the pouch is a peacock feather print from Palais Jardin by Robert Kaufman, the lining is Riley Blake and the binding is Lecien.

This was actually my first finish of the quarter for the Finish Along, but I've had to save the blogging until now, because it was a gift. The birthday is now gone, so I can share. You can find my original Finish Along list here.

It's gorgeous! Congratulations on the finish! *waves pompoms* (Could you sew the binding to the inside and then hand sew it to the outside?)
