The Lined Pouch

  April's sewing project is all done!! YEAH!!  This month the challenge was to sew something lined.  Indeed it was a challenge.  I have an aversion to things lined.  Not sure why this is.  All those cute bags, a very pretty skirt, and other endless possibilities are found with a lining.  My thinking was to sew something small. The idea of a lined pouch sounded appealing  Not so scary, right?? You can use material that is lying around, and there are LOTS of great tutorials out there.  I used the tutorial found on tweleve22
I am finding that with the warmer weather coming, Ric Rac is catching my eye more and more.  Thought this would be a fun project to try it out.
Of course here is a picture of what this project is all about, the lining.  Not the best job, nor is it a perfect fit.  Just happy that I did it and it IS functional!
 Now that I have one done, I would not be so scared to try another. Might be good to have a couple of these handy for summer.  Cheers!!
