Improv Blog Hop: Day 3

Here comes inspiration! You've seen what Amy Friend has made with her new Improv fabric collection; for the rest of the week we have five bloggers sharing what they've made with these fun, modern fabrics. Be sure to stop by each day to see a new project made with Improv! (And if you missed our original interview with Amy, find it here.)

Today Charise from Charise Creates is sharing an absolutely adorable pouch made using her Pussy Cat pattern. She chose a textured print from Improv to be the fur--a sweet little ginger cat! The pouch is paper pieced.



Charise says: I am thrilled to be today's stop on the Blog hop for Amy Friend's new fabric - Improv by Benartex.
I made my Pussy Cat Pattern into a zipper pouch.  I love how Amy's fabric translated so perfectly into the kitty fur!
Her new fabric line is gorgeous! The colors are beautiful and the prints are fresh and modern.

Head over to Charise's blog to see more of Pussy Cat Pouch, as well as a second pouch made using Improv fabrics.

For a chance to win a bundle of Improv fabric, leave a comment here on the blog telling us which Improv print is your favorite. Giveaway is open through Sunday, July 16th at 11:59 pm EDT.
