Pouch Swap Information

We are very pleased that the Member's Swap/Challenge Committee has announced their 1st activity...a Pouch Swap.  Jessica introduced all of us to these delightful little containers on Saturday, and showed how they can hold a wide range of items from left-over change, and knitting supplies, to travel accessories.

Since you are making a little pouch for someone and someone else is making a pouch for you...maybe you want to help steer them in the right direction, and a Mosaic is great for that.   Here is an example of a Mosaic filled with lovely little pouches.

If you'd like to make a Mosaic all your own, check out BigHugeLabs.  If you are unfamiliar with this tool, this tutorial might help.  We'd love for you to share your Mosaic with the other STLMQG members, so feel free to upload it to our Flickr Photo Pool.

Need some further inspiration, tutorials or are some ideas to get you started.

There are hundreds of tutorials and patterns out there, so don't feel limited to just the ones above.  Let your creativity run wild, just remember it's a pouch, not a totebag.

Can't wait to see your finished pouches next month!
