Pouches and keychains in Simple Goodness Fabric

This post is part of the Simple Goodness blog tour. The fabric for this project was provided by Riley Blake designs but the project and opinions are my own.

I have come to the conclusion that navy and I are BFF’s. And any fabric line that includes navy is going to find it’s way up to the top of my list. This Simple Goodness fabric is no exception, the blush pinks, red and turquoise are wonderful accents to my favorite rich navy.

I decided to sew up a bunch of pouches to show off some of these beautiful prints. Last year I made a similar set with some Vintage Adventure fabric and have been meaning to make them again so I could offer the pattern. I’m happy to report that I was successful and the pattern is now available on my blog. The printable version of these pouches can be found in my Etsy shop.

The pouches have a lining and bottom made with laminated cotton which makes wiping them up a breeze. The three different sizes also nest inside each other making them super useful for storing when not being used. The large pouch is generously sized to hold all of your travel necessities from contact solution to shampoo. The medium pouch is a perfect make-up pouch and the mini works wonderfully to hold elastics and clips. (one note- because of the construction to allow it to open wider, the end is not completely sealed and if you have bobby pins inside, they might fall out- I speak from experience 🙂 )

I also couldn’t resist using some of the left over scraps to create a few key chains/wrist straps. I love having a bunch on hand to use as gifts when needed.

The extra tall version of the large pouch makes a wonderful embroidery organizer. I used mine all last football season, to hold my projects on the go so I could stitch during the pre-game warm-ups. Again, the vinyl coating on the bottom came in super handy when setting it down on those super dingy stadium bleachers.

The only thing I was missing in my first version, was a place to store my scissors and floss, so I added a pocket to the inside so I didn’t have to fish all the way to the bottom of this gigantic pouch. It’s so tall, it will hold an 8″ embroidery hoop!

Simple goodness is a darling fabric line and I can’t wait to sew up some more darling projects soon!
