Here's what the basic sides looked like after fusing the pieces. Each piece is about 7 1/2 inches square.
After fusing, I blanket stitched around the motifs with a matching purple thread then assembled the pouch. Like the other, it does have a lining, I just didn't take a picture of the lining fabric.
It definitely came out better than the last one, I'm really pleased with the purple and cream and hope my friend likes it. Without all the tucks adding bulk, the zipper went in much better, but the top corners are still a little weird. I have to work that out next time, but I think I know what the problem is so it shouldn't be too hard. These really are fun, and not too hard to make. I've really enjoyed trying some different types of piecing for these so far without committing to something big and complicated.
