All of the supplies you need to make the Darling Diagonal Makeup Pouch are included in the Sewers Club Box - including an awesome instructional video! I highly recommend watching the video before starting your project as it is full of helpful tips! I like to watch the video and sew along - it's easy to pause and rewind/rewatch a step if needed!

Let's take a look at the Sewers Club - April Box

Sewing Tips:
  • The included Primavera Fabrics in your Sewers Club box are cut the same size so choose your favorite print to be your exterior fabric.
  • I chose to machine quilt rectangles 1.25" x 2.5"on my exterior fabric. I recommend FIRST fusing the Fusible Fleece to the exterior fabric, QUILT desired pattern, THEN cut the fabric per pattern cutting directions.
  • Don't forget to leave the zipper open at least half-way before sewing pouch sides and bottom. You will use the open zipper to turn your pouch right side out.
  • On the final step - boxing the pouch corners - I recommend to backstitch on start and end when sewing along the marked line. The backstitch will make sure your seam is secure.
