TGIFF - Peace for Ukraine Zippered Pouch

Berene @ Happy Sew Lucky created a pattern to show support for Ukrainians.  I decided to make a zippered pouch using Noodlehead's open wide zippered pouch tutorial.  A friend of mine lives next door to an Ukrainian family, so the pouch will be gifted to them.

I used Kona Pacific, Citrus, and White.  In a workshop a few weeks ago with Sheri @ Whole Circle Studio, we were instructed to starch our fabrics when paper piecing.  It definitely made piecing this small pattern so much easier.

I used a butterfly print for the other side of the pouch.

The finishing touch with a zipper pull.

  1. I keep sending money and purchasing from Ukrainian makers. I don't know if I will ever really make anything, but doing some small part feels good. I'm sure the pouch will be much appreciated.

  2. I saw the pattern on Facebook, thanks for the link. The pouch is a great gift to make.

  3. Your pouch is great, and I'm sure it will be appreciated.

  4. Beautiful pouch and I’m sure they’ll appreciate it.

  5. Love this pouch, Anja. I am so pleased to see all the support Ukraine is getting. I do hope this ends quickly. It is a such a sin.
