I got to hand over another little handmade gift last week!
You may remember the Tilda & Cork pouch I made for a friend during the summer? Well this one is for her mum.
My friend recently gave me a bag of small fabric samples, the perfect size for pouch making! And she also guided me on her mum’s favourite colours – sage & olive greens, gold and oatmeal.
Well I just had to sneak in a rich autumnal red with this classy colour scheme. And a little vintage trim to boot!
Quilting the swatches onto Legacy Flex Foam really gives them definition and structure.
I also found an old jewellery pendant which I thought worked well as a zipper pull!
I’m happy to report the recipient is tickled pink with her new pouch!
And because I love making cute little pouches from repurposed textiles, I’d call that a win, win!

This week I’ll be delivering 2 more handmade gifts.
Today, I handed over a sweet little Tilda and Cork patchwork pouch!
My friend is an interior designer and very kindly supplied me with the sample swatches I needed for my daughter’s Teacher’s present.
This is another sewing friend, so I though she might like a little pouch to keep some sewing bits and bobs in! Though when she saw she said she was in need of a new make-up pouch!
I love making projects from ‘wee bits’ – I think the cork compliments the Tilda scraps beautifully, as well as giving the pouch a sturdy and robust feel.
The exterior quilted beautifully onto Legacy Flex Foam, so while it is soft and squishy, it can stand up proud all by itself!
But what do you think of the mini pompom trim? I’m still not entirely sure if I should have added it or not!
Pompom trim or no, my friend was tickled pink with her new pouch!
I so love giving handmade gifts to friends, don’t you!
