A new pouch
Here is a new pouch to store my quilting stuff. It wasn't easy to make but I am very pleased with the result. I really love these taupe colors and the quilting on each side of the pouch adds to the charm as do every little detail : two different fabrics used as zipper gussets, the stitched colonial knots with an overdyed thread on the handle and the buttons added to the zipper.
The model is from Yoko Saito and was bought as a kit a long time ago. But I have changed the general shape slightly from the original to make it personal.
Don't you think it looks great in front of the Japanese fountain ?
I had promised I would show you finishes and there is one more to come! But as I am soon going to London for work, it will take a few weeks before it is completely finished. So you may see in-progress photos meanwhile.
