Cyber Monday sales & Fairport Pouch Review

Before I review the beautiful Fairport Pouch I made for the Radiant Home blog tour, I want to let you know about 2 Cyber Monday sales you don’t want to miss.  The sponsors of our latest edition of All The Skirts are each having fantastic sales.  Over at Raspberry Creek Fabrics, take 15% off your total purchase with the code GIVETHANKS15  And Violette Field Threads is offering an ADDITIONAL 15% off (for a total of 55%off!!!) all patterns with the code cybermonday so those of you (like me) who procrastinated, lucked out!!

Now onto that cute clutch!  We were given the Fairport Purse & Pouch pattern by Radiant Home Studio.  We first saw and fell in love with Sara’s version of the Fairport Purse pattern when we were on the Bonnie Christine Ribbon blog tour with her.

Normally when I sign up for a blog tour, I try to be prompt with my sewing, but due to the Thanksgiving weekend (and #thereallybigshirtevent) I waited until last night to get started on this project.  Really.  I just let you know that so I could tell you how simple it is to create this darling pouch!

I chose to use grey shot cotton from Imagine Gnats for the main fabric and an orange suede for the yoke.  The lining fabric is from Simple Simon & Company’s Four Corners fabric line leftover from this skirt.  I just adore the way this pouch turned out and can’t wait to make more of them!

The instructions were thorough and accurate for the Fairport Pouch.  I think even a beginning seamstress could make this pattern!  The instructions have both drawn and photo illustrations making it very easy to understand how to construct the Fairport Purse and Pouch.

I only made one small change to this pattern.  It called for a magnetic snap, but I only had regular snaps in my stash, so regular it was.   Next time I will use magnetic!

The Fairport Pouch is just the right size purse for me.  I do carry my Senna Tote most places, but keep everything inside of it organized in pouches and bags.  Then I just grab the pouch I need and go.

The Fairport Purse and Pouch has several closure options, a zipper, a magnetic snap, and the one I made, a snap tab.  It also has several handle options, a shoulder strap, no strap, and the one I chose, a wrist strap.  All those options mean you can make this pattern several times and have a slightly different looking purse each time!
