STLMQG Pouch Swap

Tomorrow is my STLMQG meeting and I am participating in a secret pouch swap! Everyone that wanted to participate put their name and info into a pouch and we all drew names for our secret partners!  How fun?!? Here is what I came up with...I hope my partner likes it!

I did a little smocking in the main fabric and totally fell in love with it!  I wouldn't go smocking an entire shirt or dress or anything, but this little pouch was fun!  It was relaxing to do some hand work, I wish I had more time to do so! The top fabric is Amy Butler Soul Blossoms and the bottom is a Moda fabric (can't remember what line).  I just came up with the pouch shape myself, I free handed the shape and was please with how it turned out!
