Cork Pouches

I've recently gifted a selection of 'cork pouches'.


I love working with cork!  It goes with just about everything, comes in lots of different colours (including sparkly!) can be rotary cut, pieced, quilted, ironed (medium-cool heat setting) and is 3d friendly!  Did you know it's vegan too (though I don't recommend eating it!).


Here's the first cork pouch:


Cork Pouch Gift for Zoe


This was made for a friend of my daughter who has been through a tough time lately.

I had a very small offcut of this gorgeous animal fabric (Echino, I think!) and managed (just about) to fussy cut the animals.   I particularly like the zebras as my daughter's friend is a young mum and it reminded me of the lovely bond she has with her son.

The pouch was sent off with an inspirational notebook and lots of love!

Pouch no. 2 was made as an 'end of year' thank you gift.


Cork Pouch gift for Joanne


As with most of my pouches, I make them up as I go along!  I'd seen some lovely curved pouches on Pinterest and thought I'd have a go!

The 2nd side of the zipper is a little tricky as you are sewing against the curve, but completely manageable with patience and deft fingers!

All of the fabrics in this pouch are available to purchase in my studio.


And last but not least, a geographical pouch for a special girl!


Lucy's Map Pouch


My middle daughter has already left for a 3 month missions trip, so I thought a useful but easy to pack pouch would come in handy.

With another offcut of map fabric I managed to include 2 countries that hold significance for my daughter, Brazil (a country she would love to visit one day) and Japan, where she will be spending the first 2 months of 2020.

I quilted both sides of the pouch along the longitude and latitude lines that were already printed on this 'old style' map!

So that's my round up of cork pouches gifted this Christmas.


If you've never sewn with cork before give it a try! You'll soon discover how versatile and user friendly it is!


Happy sewing!
