HOW TO MAKE… A ZIP POUCH MA­TE­RI­ALS

Eight 6.5cm (25/ 8") squares of pat­terned fab­ric Linen cot­ton fab­ric, 50cm (19¾") Lin­ing fab­ric, 33 x 26.5cm (13 x 10½") Wad­ding, 30.5 x 26.5cm (12 x 10½") Zip, 33cm (13") Bast­ing spray Ro­tary cut­ter A lit­tle bit of printed fab­ric can go a long way when you’ve got snow­ball patch­work blocks and a cool neu­tral linen on your side.

This pouch pro­ject is ideal for show­ing off any pre­cious scrap pieces that are too pretty to toss. Been hoard­ing a slither of Lib­erty print or a one-off vin­tage find? Now’s the time to let them shine. 01 Cut the linen fab­ric into 32 2.5 x 2.5cm (1 x 1") squares, one 3.5 x 26.5cm (13/ x 10 ") top piece, one 8 4 x 26.5cm (15/ x 10 ") bot­tom 8 piece, two 3.5 x 11cm (13/ x 43/ 8") 8 side pieces and one 16.5 x 26.5cm (6 x 10 ") back­ing piece. Cut the lin­ing fab­ric into two 16.5 x 26.5cm (6 x 10 ") pieces, and the wad­ding into two 15 x 26.5cm (6 x 10 ") pieces.

02 Draw a di­ag­o­nal line on the wrong side ( WS) of each of the 2.5 x 2.5cm (1 x 1") linen squares, from cor­ner to cor­ner. Pin a linen square

to each cor­ner of one pat­terned fab­ric square, ori­en­tat­ing the di­ag­o­nal lines to cre­ate an oc­tagon shape at the cen­tre of the fab­ric square, as shown. Sew along all four di­ag­o­nal lines.

03 Trim each cor­ner to cre­ate a 0.5cm ( ") seam, then press the seams open to make the snow­ball block, as shown. Re­peat Steps 2-3 with the re­main­ing pat­terned and linen fab­ric squares to cre­ate eight snow­ball blocks in to­tal.

04 Place two snow­ball blocks with right sides (RS) to­gether and sew along one short edge to join. Press the seams open, then re­peat to cre­ate a strip of four blocks.

05 Re­peat Step 4 to cre­ate a sec­ond strip of four blocks, then pin the two with RS to­gether and sew along one long edge to join. Press the seams open.

06 Place the patch­work panel RS up, then pin a linen side piece along one short edge with RS
