Little pouches come in handy for a number purposes. They can provide a protective sleeve for cell phones, mini tablets, cameras, etc. Or, by adding a looped cord to use as a handle, it can serve as a small evening bag to accommodate essentials. When I spend a lot of time making something, it's nice if there's a practical purpose to the item. This is the second tri-fold butterfly pouch that I have made. It is a little larger than the first, and the design has evolved somewhat. The 2nd, newer version of the butterfly pouch. The original butterfly pouch; smaller with different motifs. The latest pouch is lined with a grey cotton and assembled in the same way as I did the first. See the first pouch here . Open front. Back and front flap. This close-up of the butterfly highlights the background filler stitch. The stitch, called "point rapproche" (meaning back and forth stitch), has a similar effect as the basic stipple stitch in machine quilting.
