needlepunch pouch

Before i start, I'd like to say thank you for the comments on my last post. I had some messages of support which were lovely to read. It real does help to know people understand and/or care.  So thank you.

I made a little needle punch / punch needle picture ages and ages ago... let me have a look.  Oh!  February 2013.  So three years ago.  My WIPs just get older by the day!  Anyway, I pulled it off one of my many WIP piles and made it into a little pouch.



I don't know what the fabric is that I used, but I wanted something that went with one of the threads used on the main piece.



That unsightly buldge on the back is one of my needle punches, see...



I lined it with an old Petit Ecole print that I thought matched the colour scheme.  



I've made loads of pouches in my time and I STILL can't get the zip ends neat.  I don't know how other sewers do it.

I've kind of given up on zip ends. No matter my technique they never come out looking nice. I feel your pain :)

Love the use of a yellow zip, looks great. I wouldn't know where to start putting in a zip.

I haven't tried needle punch although I've done latch hook. Congratulations on getting your patch mounted to a pouch. It's really cute and will useful, too!

Love the little heart, very apt at this time of year. The zip looks fine to me.

It's delightful. And as for WIPS - convert them to WISPs (Works in Slow Progress)!

Yay! for finally finishing that WIP, three years is a drop in the ocean compared to some :)

Love it! I actually have a finished punch needle that I don't know what to do with. This is definitely a good idea! :D

Thanks for linking up to the Creative Craft Bloggers Group Link Party! I love your project. About zippers, I have such a hard time with them as well. It looks great though!
