This week Vince’s mum celebrated her birthday. As part of her birthday celebrations we’d bought her some of her favourite candles but I had nothing nice to put them in.
Enter the Purple Patchwork Pouch!
I knew I wanted to sew something akin to a gift bag that would actually last and be reusable. I also have a huge bag of patchwork square groups (like charm packs?) that my mum had cut and grouped years ago and then given to me.
So I came up with this!
It is very simple patchwork that I actually quilted!!! I’ve never done this before and I was just a little bit pleased with myself LOL. I lined the pouch with some ivory satin I had in my stash, added a ribbon loop and a button, et voila!
I loved making this and it has totally given me the sewing bug again! Yesterday I actually made a mini runner/mat for my mantelpiece for the autumn which I love love love! I will show you later this week 🙂
I love creating things be it sewing, crochet or something else 🙂 It makes me incredibly happy and I feel blessed to be able to do so.
Are you creating anything at the moment?
