Zuma Zippy Pouches [a Finish]

A couple of months back I set myself a challenge to use up some orphan blocks I had lying round. I ended up making two Speedy Vinyl Pouches designed by Aneela Hoey. I knew right away I'd be making more! A friend has recently returned from a holiday in the US, and might just have brought back some shopping for me! So as a thank you I knocked up three of these pouches.

Except I had a bit of an accident and totally forgot to put the wadding in the first one. A council of war was convened at our Monday evening patchwork group and the original I had made was handed round alongside the new, wadding-less, example. Could I get away with it. I had also picked up a thinner vinyl... luckily for me and my seam-ripper, the consensus was that the un-wadded one was absolutely fine, so I went ahead and made up the other two waddingless to match.

And I used a fabric I knew would be a hit: Zuma by Tula Pink: the main jellyfish print in all three coloourways for the outside, the low volume neon pink for the inside and the Tower stripey print for the binding. I'll confess I started with the binding fabric!

This is a Finish Along finish. You can find my original list here.

These are lovely. And it's so nice when a little mistake works out. :-) Thank you for participating in the FAL, on behalf of the 2019 global FAL hosts.
