These are the first few zipped pouches hot off the machine. I’m snatching little bits of time here and there to make them, in the hope of finishing as many as possible before the stall on Saturday. I have a terrible habit of thinking I “haven’t got time” to do something, and pootling about on Facebook or Pinterest instead. These pouches come together so quickly now that all the cutting out has been done, that I have high hopes of having a nice little basketful by the weekend, all made in my spare moments after work.
This gives you an idea of the size. They measure about 7½ by 5 inches - plenty of room for a smallish camera or biggish smartphone. Each pouch is fully lined, and hand-finished so that there’s no visible stitching anywhere.
And below, you can see my one concession to the festive season – five little starry pouches, made from the leftovers of the Christmas dress I made for my niece last year!
I’ll be selling these at the fair for £4 each, or three for £10. Any that I bring back will be going on Etsy at a flat £4, as I can’t do the combined offer there. If anyone wants to grab any of these before they go, just send me a message with your chosen fabrics (which you can see in the previous post), and I’ll send them out first thing next week. Postage will depend on how many you buy!
Speaking of Etsy, I’ll be closing the shop next Saturday, just for one day, to make sure that I don’t accidentally sell two of something I’ve only made one of. So, if you’ve had your eye on something and don’t want to risk it selling out at the weekend, it might be wise to head on over to the Emporium and grab it now!
