Happy Bloggy Day to Crafty Hour, and good luck in all the wonderful giveaways out there.
A collection of variegated embroidery threads, vintage buttons, and assorted "handmade" tags, all inside a pretty handmade zipper pouch.
Friday afternoon I had an idea floating around in my head, but no amount of Googling lead me to just the right thing. I did find this tutorial, the same idea of a flat pouch with a zipper partway down instead of at the top. Only thing was, it's not lined. A little experimenting and this pouch happened. I hope to do a tutorial for the lined pouch in the next week, so be sure to come back and have a look!
The outer is charcoal twill, embroidered to coordinate with the inner, which is a Chinese satin brocade. I have Aneela Hoey's book Little Stitches from the library, so I got to practice some of the different stitches she outlines. (I love this book! So many sweet embroidery designs and projects, plus good photos and technique descriptions.)
