Zakka Along Week 11 :: Orchard Tweed Pouch

This post is part of the Zakka Style Sew Along, please visit here to catch up if you’re just joining us!


You all rocked the zip organizers last week!!!

Excuse the massive mosaic, but I had to squeeze all I could find in the flickr group.

(If I missed yours, it was not on purpose!)

This was a challenging project, and I thought maybe 5 or so people would complete it.

Wha?  More like 28, woot!

And the fabric choices!  I kept saying to myself, ooh I want one like that, and that and that and that….

So out of 28 entries, chose the winner for the Lecien Cosmo sampler kit and it’s #22, Marian.  Congratulations!

Thank you so much to Lecien for you generosity!


This weeks project is an adorable zipper pouch designed by Amanda Jennings.

Elizabeth from Don’t Call Me Betsy is our blogger for this project and I love her little pouch.   Especially the lining fabric!

She has given some great advice on sewing this pouch up, so be sure to head over and check out her post.

Take a peek at her tutorials and patterns while you’re there, she has LOTS of inspiring things on her blog!


Projects that are completed and entered this week have a chance to win a beautiful fat quarter bundle of Summerlove from Art Gallery Fabrics.    Art Gallery is known for the feel of their fabric and you are going to love these beauties!

You may begin linking up your finished Orchard Path pouch today through Sunday June 17th at 11:59 pm EST for a chance to win the fat quarter bundle of Summerlove!

Click on the frog picture below to link up (one) of your projects or to view the entries.

I’ll be back a little later today with a new sponsor and a giveaway!

Have fun this week, Lindsey

P.S.   Don’t forget next Sunday is Father’s Day! Are you making anything handmade for Father’s Day??

P.S.S.   The Summer Sewing contest is open for project entries!

    Yes, I entered tow of my projects in the Summer Sewing contest. Thought they fit in nicely (o:ReplyCancel

  • I notice you said that the pictures in the mosaic were all from Flickr – does this mean that those of us who don’t use Flickr but are blogging our projects each week are not being included?ReplyCancel

    The Lecien Cosmo sampler kit is such a wonderful giveaway and I’m thrilled to be the lucky winner! I see more Sachiko stitching in my future!

    Thank you, Lecien, both for the beautiful thread and for your generous sponsorship of the Sew Along. Lindsey, thank you, too, for creating it, selecting the bloggers and guiding us each week.ReplyCancel

  • Lindsey,
    I just wanted to make sure I wouldn’t be disqualified for this week because I didn’t add hexi’s but a zig zag instead? if so i’ll go ahead and make another with hexi’s 🙂

  • The pouch by marymoon stitches is adorable! Totally kawaii fabric and zipper fob too. Inspiring!ReplyCancel
