covert robin - check!

What I started, I have finished! 
That's always a good thing, eh?

 My last post I showed some peeks of the swap item I am making for my covert robin swap partner.  

Now I show you what I have made from said sneaky peek.  

I am particularly pleased with this bright little pouch.  I love the contrast of brights against the dark blue linen.  Maybe next time, I will try with smaller hexies.  

I used this tutorial from Sew Together to draft the pattern for the pouch.  I made it smaller than they did, and my pouch measures about 8" wide, 4.5" high, and 2 inches wide on the bottom.  I think it's a great size for storing some sewing machine feet or stashing candy.  

No fancy schmancy zipper ends on this pouch.  Just plain jane zipper-ends-here style.  And since the outside was so bright I thought to tone it down on the inside with a neutral print, simple black on white. 

I will be posting more about the pouch and how I came to make it on my partner's blog sometime in April, after she has received it.  I'll let you know where and when.
