See It all Pouch from Stitched Sewing Organizers with Simply by Ti Geometric trim

I’m excited to share today about a fun project that I recently made.  I have been quite excited about the book Stitched Sewing Organizers by Aneela Hoey (and I’ve slowly been working my way through patterns from the book).

Today I’m going to share about the See-It-All Pouch pattern that I’ve made with some fun geometric trim from the Simply by Ti** fabric shop.

I have previously sewn the See-It-All pouch a few times. The pattern calls for a bias binding but I used the lace trim instead for this project.

Materials needed (to recreate the version that I’ve made):

  • 2 yards of lace trim (this was the trim that I used)
  • 2 fat quarters of denim
  • 1 piece of 10″ x 15″ of clear vinyl for exterior
  • 1 12″ zipper (the pattern called for a 10″ zipper but I used a longer zipper for this project)
  • Darning foot for your sewing machine

 

As this pattern is not free, I won’t share all the details of the pattern steps but I will share my mods in this post.

I skipped the interfacing for this project as I used two medium weight denims for this project, together.

I decided to sew free motion embroidery on the denim, to mimic the circular geometric patterning in the trim.  I sewed the denim pieces with the wrong sides together (to help stabilize the embroidery and mimic how the pieces will be assembled in the final pouch).

When I sewed the zipper to the lace trim, I sewed an extra seam along the bottom portion of the trim to help stabilize the seam.  I liked how the trim gives an open view on the inside of the pouch.

The following is the view of the back side of the pouch (showing the geometric circles that are on the back view as well).

I highly recommend this book!  It’s a great inspiration piece for making gifts for others with (or gifts for yourself).

This was a fun project.  I’m planning to keep this pouch as a gift to myself to enjoy keeping together little bits and bobs in this reusable organizer.

I really enjoyed using this trim. I am quite drawn to geometric prints and shapes so this was a fun one to work with.  It was also quite fun to pair this trim with a non-garment project.  Let me know if you decide to try this trim out or if you’ve sewn projects from this book as well.

  1. This is a great way to switch things up. I’ve only darned a pair of jeans one for a friend and it worked out well so this gives me an idea to do something with some denim I have. This sounds like an interesting book. I only wish I had more time to do everything I want 😵
