Our Just Jude designer collaboration is well underway! (You can read all about this new initiative here.)



For our first week we have been making Svetlana’s Lola Pouch (there are 2 sizes to choose from).

I had the privilege of pattern testing the Lola Pouch for Svetlana so I’m familiar with this gorgeous pattern and have enjoyed making several more pouches since.

I decided to make 3 small Lola pouches as gifts for 3 sewing friends.

This time I teamed up some medium grain cork with sumptuous ‘Roads to Flowerhouse’ by Bari J for Art Gallery Fabrics. I just love the rich colours in this print.

Svetlana is a fellow stripey binding fan, so the Michael Miller narrow black and white stripe was the perfect choice here.

When I first made the Lola pouch, I feel in love with Svetlana’s cool technique for recessing the zipper underneath the binding, with the option of tucking in or leaving out the zipper tab!  Genuis!

I couldn’t resist finishing these cuties with a little leather detail.

So all that’s left to do is fill up these little pouches with sewing treats and get them posted off!


(All materials used in these pouches are available in our shop.)

  1. These are gorgeous, I always love a bit of teal and flowers together so it is an easy pick of my favourite. Do you use a normal needle for sewing through the cork?
