Strip Quilted Pouch

I've meaning to post this for awhile now:

This is a little pouch that I made for a friend of my mom's.  She's legally blind and has a guide dog.  She doesn't like to carry a purse.  I've made her several Crazy Quilt cellphone pouches over the years but this time I thought I'd make her a larger pouch so she has room for her keys, phone, rosary and wallet.

I strip quilted the pouch on a muslin foundation, then top stitched lace over the seams.  I appliqued the rose embroidery (from a vintage hanky) on top using heat and bond to hold it in place while sewing it down.  Then I added the trim around the outside.

A few embellishments gives it some sparkle.

I put it all together and then hand crocheted some trim for the bottom with some fancy yarn. 

The chain is removable.  I use the little lobster claw clasps which I hand sewn on and then added the chain.

It's a nice quick gift if anyone is looking for some fast Christmas ideas!

In other news, there's a contest over at Fans Of Kitty And Me Designs Facebook group!  The prize is one of my cross stitch patterns.  Hop over and check it out!
