Hello Everyone! Hope you are all having a wonderful week so far.  🙂

For my patchwork zipper pouch no. 2, i have decided to sew something that i have never done before – A Round Pouch! I must say, I REALLY LOVE IT. I think it is the round shape that makes it looks so cute. 🙂

I couldn’t decide on patchwork or hand stitch words so i decided to do both. One on each side. I think it turn out quite lovely. 🙂
