Lisbon Pouches | A Finished Project| Scrap Project 10 & 11


One of these days I will have a finished quilt to share, but I just haven't made the time to finish any. Plus this time of year, I love a quick project that I can finish in one sewing session. So these Lisbon Pouches by SOTAK Patterns are that perfect quick project.


My oldest daughter has been asking for a wallet like pouch for awhile now as she has been earning money from loosing tooth and doing additional chores than her usual. So when trying to find a pattern that would work, I remembered the Lisbon Pouch and with the two zippers I thought it would be perfect.


And if I make one for my oldest daughter, that means I better make one for the youngest as well! So two quick zip pouches in an afternoon, made with scrap fabric, interfacing, and leftover zipper ends!


I love Svetlana's patterns, so clearly written and easy to follow. I have so many of her patterns, that I sew up constantly. Useful patterns that create function items that work well for daily life!


Now I just have to get my kiddos to remember to take their wallets when we head out shopping. Never to early to teach kiddos about them having to pay for some of the extra items that they want.

Happy Stitching!

  1. Fun project and you are so right about teaching the value of spending your own money on what you want. We did that with my son and as a 26 year old not making a lot, he never asks for anything.

2017 New Quilt Blogger Blog Hop

for the last several weeks i have been participating in the 2017 New Quilt Bloggers Blog Hop, hosted by Yvonne (Quilting Jet Girl), Beth (Cooking Up Quilts), and Leanne (She Can Quilt). while i have been blogging for a little while, this blog hop has been great to hone my blogging skills and meet other quilt bloggers.

i have been crafty most of my life, i even learned to sew when i was younger. but it didn't really stick. after college i was living in Iowa and on a whim i bought a cheap sewing machine and began a back and forth with sewing. fast forward a few years, i got married and pulled that sewing machine out again and this time actually made a quilt top (that sat for at least 3 years before i quilted it). sewing again was pushed to the side as i was finishing my master's program and job hunting. 
well after landing a job, moving, looking for a house. we found out we were expecting. though it was not to be and i miscarried in march 2011. during the next year sewing becam…

2019 Quilters Meet & Greet

Benita of Victoriana Quilt Designs approached me if I wanted to participate in a Quilter's Meet and Greet. And since both kiddos are in school this year, I actually have a little more time to actually blog, so I figured this was a great time to join the fun.

So here is a little more about me, my quilting journey, and life in the Upper Peninsula of Michigan!

Hi! I'm Jess Pugh and I grew up in Ludington, Michigan, famous for the Lake Michigan Carferry the S.S. Badger. Went to Michigan State University for my undergrad in botany and later my Master's at University of Wisconsin - Milwaukee for my MLIS.


I was set up with my husband on a blind date, and were married 6 months later. In January 2020 we will be celebrating 12 years of marriage! This by far was one of the craziest things I've done!
I have two girls, Nora and Enna. Nora is a 1st grader this year and Enna started preschool. Plus we also have our 10 year old black lab, Berrie.
I started sewing as a way to help heal…

Buffalo Plaid Quilt : A Finished Quilt

my last big Christmas gift is done! this year i wanted to make my BIL and SIL quilts, as i've made quilts for the kiddos, i figured it was their turn for a quilt. well i needed one more masculine quilt and i've always wanted to make a buffalo plaid quilt so this was perfect!

at first i was not looking forward to making this one, with all of the cutting and putting the small squares together. but after some thinking i decided i would strip piece and streamline the process. i was able to piece the top together in one day as opposed to multiple days if i would have cut individual squares.

i love this quilt, of course i now want to make one for myself, but that will be for another time.

Pattern: designed by me, inspired by buffalo plaid scarves and quilts
Dimensions: 61.5 inches x 74.5 inches
