Hand embroidered pouches with pom pom trim

Some more ideas turned into reality! I made these the other day using antique linen with pretty cotton fabrics. I hand embroidered the linen and then add some ric rac and pom pom trim. They are really sweet little purses. I want to make some more and really need to perfect inserting zips - not so easy! I was thinking these pouches are great to carry papers around in your bag, or for kids as pencil cases, clip holders, jewellery bags and so on. So many uses for them! More images on flickr


  1. Hi Rachel - I met your sister at the last Mathilda's Market.I've made several zippered purses - they're easy to put in if you put them in first (Kelly Doust shows how in her book 'The Crafty Minx')
