Sew Cute Tuesday - HERE Today!

Sew Cute Tuesday

Welcome to Sew Cute Tuesday - Ms Midge style!  The lovely Alyce from Blossom Heart Quilts has handed over the reigns this week, whilst she enjoys some fun family time!

If you've never been here before - welcome!  I'm Melissa - aka Midge, and I hang out here on my blog quite regularly.  I like to share anything and everything - and at times too much.  I hope you'll stick around.

There were some beautiful projects linked up in last week's Sew Cute Tuesday linky, here are a few that caught my eye....


Chelsea from Patch The Giraffe shared a fabulous idea for using orphan blocks and remembering the quilts you make.

Rebecca from One Wee Bird shared this darling clam shell mini quilt she received from a quilt swap.  She also shares her feelings, which is beautiful to read.


And Wendy from Wendy's Quilts shared this amazing tumbling blocks quilt!

Now on to my sharing for this week!

Idea Pouch

A few months ago, I bought these two amazing Kaffe Fassett fabrics in my Craftsy purchase.  I bought them with purpose - to make something for my Mum for Mother's Day.  It got to a week before and I still hadn't made anything!  I was going to make a bag, then she promptly put up a photo on FB of a new bag she'd just made herself.  Hmmmm.....  Gemma suggested the Idea Pouch pattern to me, so I took her suggestion and ran with it!  And just because I can, I made two at the same time.  The blue one on the right was gifted to Mum (which she loved) and the red one I'm going to pop up for sale on my FB page.

Idea Pouch

So - what is the Idea Pouch for?  Well, I was in such a hurry to get the pattern and download it that I didn't really even look at the size or specifications.  Turns out it is quite the handy size and fits an ipad in the rear pocket, and notebook and stationary in the front pocket!

There's even handy little slots for your pens!  I'm thinking these will make great teacher's presents at the end of the school year!  You can buy the pattern from Michelle Patterns.

OK, your turn!  Link up your sewing projects from the past week:


  1. HI Midge. Thank you so much for profiling my black and white tumbling blocks quilt today. I love Sew Cute Tuesday, and I get a lot of inspiration from the posts that are linked up. Thanks again. Wendy.

  2. I love those pouches! Definitely need to pin those for future projects.

  3. The Idea Pouch is a great idea... gorgeous fabrics! Thanks for hosting...

  4. Woohoo! Thanks for hosting! Love those pouches!

  5. Happy to come across your blog - thanks for hosting!

  6. Oh my gosh, that tumbling blocks is wonderful! Thanks for hosting, I love looking at everyone's projects!

  7. Those pouches are wonderful- LOVE your fabrics!

  8. I love the pouch! I attend several quilting retreats each year and this would be fantastic in a little smaller version to keep a phone, paper pad, pens and such in it to have handy for ideas. If you've ever been to a retreat you know how everything gets scattered about! Phones get misplaced, need to jot down a note or reminder.... whatever! Great ideal! Thanks!


Thanks for taking the time to leave me a comment - I read each and every one of them! xx
