Possibly not the most ‘pc’ title I could have come up with – particularly with all the emphasis that is around at the moment on plastic waste! But, after using vinyl in a previous project, I decided to try a slightly more ambitious project and chose the booklet pouch – a design by Aneela Hoey. The pouch consists of four vinyl zipper pouches which are bound together. The design is quite heavy on material and there are lots of zips and binding to be sewn. Aneela Hoey’s instructions are clearly written and easy to follow. Here are some pictures of my progress….
The final pouch is 9″ high x 11″ in length x 3″ wide and looks like this….
……and it is currently home to all my goldwork bits and bobs. If I make the pouch again I think I will try to be a little more ambitious with the cover – maybe adding applique or working in patchwork.
Stitch happy everyone!
