I may be suffering from a heavy heart, but a little sewing yesterday (which actually took me all day), and a combination of Lighthearted, (Ayumi's so gorgeous new line for Kokka), and Sveltlana's pattern, I ended up with this…
Poor rainy day photography, I have resorted to the stairs for pictures, sorry.
This large sized pouch pattern is superb!
With a metal zip, a little silver leather patch, and natural Essex Linen with sneaky band of the floral inside, this was a labour of love. Yes, I stitched half the zip in upside down first time, but there was limited swearing.
I need to play serious catch up with my Amitié BOM, the next month arrived today, so I may be popping the hand-piecing in here, you know, to keep me motivated.
PS. Apologies if I owe you an email/reply, I'll be on it over the weekend, promise xxx
