Some More Pouches For Kitties

 Some time ago, a quilting friend gave me a Connecting Threads kit, that she had purchased. She had made one of the pouches in the kit and decided she didn't need to make any more. She knows I make items for the Lyndhurst Feral Cat Rescue's fundraisers and thought I might like to finish the kit. I tucked the kit away and forgot about it. This fall, I found it again, and decided to make the pouches up.

The kit was suppose to make four pouches. So far, 5 have been made. I think there is enough fabric to make one more.

The fabric is bright and cheery, though not my usual style. I added zippers from my stash, as well as some fusible fleece to make them stand up.

I made the backs a solid piece of fabric to make construction go quickly.

They open nice and wide, and with the flat bottoms are easy to fill. They are on the small size but I could see them used for stowing things while travelling. ( Will we ever travel again?)

The pouches have gone on their way to the sale. I believe the sale is mid November. It will be held on Facebook.

Because Halloween is coming, I was making Halloween masks, today.

These are 5 of the ten I made, ready to wear to school tomorrow. I gave them to some young friends along with some other treats.

I claim I don't use orange but this blog is very orange.


  1. I don't have much orange fabric either, but pouches and masks are always lovely in any colour. And for your Halloween, orange is perfect.

  2. It's a very orange time of year in your part of the world.....I quite like orange! The little pouches could be used for many things, even chocolate.

  3. Super pretty bags that you sewed.
    Oh, yes ... we will travel again ... I've already rehearsed with my husband. We were in Sweden ... wonderful. And the sewing machine is running at full speed ... at the moment I am sewing caps / hats. Great fun!
    Many greetings to you. Have a great weekend. Viola

  4. Great projects! I admire people who can do fiddly sewing; I'm not one of them -- so I'm sure those items will be appreciated by their recipients!

  5. Cute pouches for the sale and festive masks for Halloween!!

  6. Those pouches are even cuter in person, and the matching zipper charms make them very special. The cat group is very lucky to have your support! I'll bet the kids loved their masks, too.
