TGIFF - Open Wide Zippered Pouches

Welcome to Thank Goodness It's Finished Friday brought to you from Nova Scotia on the east coast of Canada.  If you are new to my blog, welcome.  If you are a regular, you will know that I am currently in a temporary apartment as my house is being repaired from a wind/rain storm back in February.  They started painting today!!  I don't want to get my hopes up, but it looks like I should be back home by the end of the month.

If you are new to TGIFF, it is a weekly opportunity to share your finish from the week.  You can find out who is hosting each week by heading over to the TGIFF blog on Thursday evening.

My finish this week is two zippered pouches.  My go-to pattern is Noodlehead's Open Wide Zippered Pouch.  It's a free tutorial!

These two pouches are a very late Christmas gift for a friend.  It will be likely be Canada Day by the time she receives them.  😉

I used Kona Red for the lining.

Did I mention how much I love this pattern?  It is quick and easy.  These are the medium size.  The tutorial also has small and large sizes.

It's time to link up your finishes from this week.  I encourage you to visit a few of the links ups to get some inspiration and to share some quilty love.

  1. Lovely bags and I am sure that they are late will be overlooked! Considering your current situation...all is forgiven. I hope you get back in very soon....this has been quite the ordeal.

  2. Perfect fabric for the Canada day / Christmas bags!

  3. I also love that pattern and have made a number of the pouches. Love that fabric!! Are you gifting these Anja?

    1. Clearly I didn't read carefully. Ignore the gifting question..... ;-)

  4. Having paint going on the walls sounds like a big milestone! I sure hope you can be moved back home this month. The red lining for the pouches looks great. I'm sure your friend will appreciate them!
