Helen had requested that I make a pouch for one of her friend's who was celebrating her birthday today. I dug around in the stash looking for inspiration, and I came up with the most delightful piece of hedgehog linen. Perfect.
Once I had the key fabric everything else fell into place pretty quickly. A little plain linen. A bright red zip. Some Little Apples red fabric for the interior. And some perle cotton.
It was nice to add a few details to take a simple pouch and make it individual. I made sure I had a hedgehog on the zip tab. I stitched a line of brown perle stem stitch on both sides. And then a quickly embroidered ladybug to mirror the ladybugs in the hedgehog fabric. Well, it was easier to embroider a ladybug than a hedgehog!
A dig in a different cupboard produced a Terry's Chocolate Orange to pop inside. Bob's your uncle, the job is done.
