Chinchilla Whiskers will be at the Mom Made Market in Portland this Sunday, August 19 from 10 am – 4 pm. The Market is located at Alpenrose Dairy in SW Portland.
The Mom Made Market’s main goal is to support moms in business. MMM offers mom-made shops a platform to sell their goods and services, network with one another, create new friendships, and come to meet their followers/supporters in person. In addition to hosting the markets, MMM is passionate about supporting mom-focused nonprofits.
I’ll have lots of these vinyl cardholder/wallets! They are perfect if you are going out and just want to bring your ID, some cash or a credit card. I use one to keep all my preferred and frequent shopper punch cards together in my purse. They would also be great for business cards!
I’ve also been working on a lot of these double zip pouches! Since I took these pictures I have added detachable wristlet straps to the pattern, making these a convenient small purse.
Chinchilla Whiskers has added a few new pouches to her shop. As usual, I am obsessed with making pouches, coming up with fabric combinations for them, and trying out new patterns. This is one of my favorite styles to make.
Here are some zippered pouches made from Aqua and Green Clocks from Ruby Star Rising by Melody Miller. Love this fabric as well as the Typewriters from this line. It has been flying out of the shop! But I know we have more on order.
I also made another pouch from some Ikea fabric purchased a while back. Inside is lined with Garbo Black from the Circa 1934 collection from Cosmo Cricket.
I also made a matching bag! There is a small interior pocket to fit the pouch. The orange bird fabric and black dots really go well together. This bag is the Market Tote from one of my favorite sewing books of 2011 — 1, 2, 3 Sew: Build Your Skills with 33 Simple Sewing Projects by Ellen Luckett Baker. I have made 4 other bags like this and love them all.
Here’s a zippered pouch I made with linen and 2 1/2″ squares of some of my favorite green fabrics. The original instructions called for a hand-sewn lining. I was not up for that so I modified the instructions using a lining that was part of the pouch construction, not a last addition. I think this makes it a nicer looking and more solidly constructed pouch.
