As promised in my last post – I plan to celebrate my first year of blogging with my first giveaway. A little more later. First I wanted to share a very cute pouch/case my aunt gave me – she believed I could reproduce it. I love it – love the colours, bright orange and pink and the design.
It was from a Kenzo perfume – amour bird. You can see the gorgeous bird and floral/foliage print in the fabric and also the wings that wrap around the case – very cleverly done. Closed with a zipper and secured with a ‘wing’ wrap, draw string the eyelets.
My second pouch was truly challenging. It stems from this exact same pouch – given to me by my cousin’s wife who is Japanese – little pouch for portable chopsticks. How was it sewn, surely I could locate the pattern on the www or Pinterest. Well, believe me I did quite a bit of research and although I found some similar ones I could note find a template where all seams were hidden. Trial and error and I worked it out. Here is my little reproduction.
Closed i t measures 16cm by 11cm or 16cm by 5.5cm [depending on which button you choose]. I have sewn 2 buttons, so it can keep either your crochet needles, pens or diary or your smart phone safe.
I plan to make another one and post the pattern and tutorial on the blog. But for now this little mushroom one can be yours. All you have to do is leave me comment telling me which is your favourite post/creation from my blog. Giveaway ends Friday 18th April and winner will be drawn 19th April.
