Autumn is with us, wet & windy . . . Winter isn’t far off . . . and with it, all those germs and runny noses. Which explains the idea behind recent sewing and a few un-birthday gifts that were sent to 3 ladies in France. From left to right, these little pouches were sent to Monique, Lynn and Ghislaine . . . the idea: to pop a packet of standard size paper tissues inside. Each pouch has a metal clip, so it can be clipped to a jeans belt-loop or to the house/car keys.
A very fun sewing session. Having fun with my new plastic poppers, using different pretty fabrics, and also messing around trying different shapes of openings.
And, of course, I didn’t stop there since I was on a roll . . .
I made quite a few! Thinking these will make lovely xmas gifts for my neighbours too. I seem to have made a lot of pinkish ones with this batch, mainly because I pulled out quite a large piece of pink cotton to use as lining. However I have already cut out some other fabrics (trying to use scraps where possible) in a more blue colourway, because not everyone likes pink. More fun sewing sessions in store.
