I'd already started on pouches for my sister and sister-in-law but I got it in my mind to say thank you to the others who sent me off last weekend and made my hen night special, as well, so I made a few more. I hope they'll love them lots, I know Perlendiva does (unfortunately I forgot to take a snap of hers before she left).
My sister and I saw the cute piglet and the fox fabric more than half a year ago, I think, but couldn't think of anything to use it for. So we didn't buy any then. But it's perfect for these cute pouches and I wanted to use something that I wa sure she'd like. Her pouch has got a sentimental "forget-me-not" label as I'm 99 per cent likely to be moving soon. We're very close and it'll be tough on us both to be so far apart. *sigh*
Fortunately, I'm 90 per cent likely to move where my sister-in-law lives (fingers crossed!!), and since we'll be proper family soon, her pouch has a different arrangement but the same fabrics as my sister's in it.
I couldn't resist and had to make a similar one for myself.
And here's the final one for another lovely friend, ready to be assembled.
Here's the bunch as of yesterday evening.
I can't wait to give them away! Stay tuned for a post about my wedding purse that I really need to finish soon.
Happy Monday and happy sewing!
