Minikins – My Bellevue & Cotton Candy Pouches


I’m back today with my samples of the Bellevue and Cotton Candy Minikins.   These two patterns come in 3 different sizes, all quick to sew up and don’t require a lot of fabric and interfacing.  Grab your scrap bins and fat quarters and stitch these up!

Here are my Cotton Candy pouches. I made my versions with cotton/linen home decor fabrics.  They were actually part of those large fabric sample books you see at JoAnns!  Sometimes they go on clearance and I will grab a few to stash away for tiny projects like these.  Linen/Cotton heavier weight is a favorite bag fabric of mine.  The sizes of these pouches are:

  • small 9-1/2” long (at widest) x 4-1/2” tall x 3-1/2” deep (at widest)
  • medium 10-1/2” long (at widest) x 6” tall x 3-1/2” deep (at widest)
  • large 12” long (at widest) x 7” tall x 3-1/2” deep (at widest)

The Bellevue Pouches are a nice simple domed top pouch that would look great with all materials.  I could totally see these in leather or waxed canvas.  Mine were made with a variety of Cotton + Steel fabrics.  Because I chose a cotton exterior, I used a layer of SF101 then Soft & Stable behind it.  I typically will use these two together when working with cotton bags because I think it adds more durability and structure.

These have a bit more height than the Cotton Candy pouches and can fit an enormous amount of items.  Think make-up, knitting supplies, paper piecing, cross-stitching, etc.

Today I’m finishing up another few samples of the larger Minikins using waxed canvas.  I hope to have those to share later this week.  If you would like to purchase the Minikins patterns or any of Sara’s other patterns head over to Sew Sweetness Patterns

Have a great day!
