It truly has two "fronts" but looking through my photos it's undeniable that I am drawn to the warm side. Fusible interfacing gave it a nice structure and I like the way the lining isn't loose inside.

Despite the last minute finish, I was able to stop by the beach for a proper photo shoot before the guild meeting and the weather cooperated nicely.
Normally in a bind swap your partner isn't revealed until the exchange but mine knew she wasn't going to be able to attend for the exchange and let me know ahead that I'd be getting my pouch the following month. It worked out great.
With an image that depicts the coast, I knew just where I wanted to stage the photo shoot to show off what I had been gifted. She did an amazing job. The pattern is Open-Out Box Pouch by Aneela Hoey and is the perfect size and shape for sewing supplies.

The card that accompanied my pouch was the inspiration palette that Jessica used. It was such a special touch to get an insight in the making and I love artist Tom Killion's work.
