This gorgeous linen and wool appliqué pouch is fully lined and is just large enough to hold a phone, toiletries, notions, stitching projects and more. It has a zipper and a faux cork bottom so that it stands on its own. It is 8″ x 5 1/2″. You will receive a detailed instruction booklet, with lots of colored photographs, and hyperlinks to YouTube videos demonstrating every step of this project, as well as links to all the different materials needed.
As a child, my father used to carefully arrange river rocks around the many cacti that he lovingly tended in our large cactus garden in front of our house. As it was often quite hot in the summer, the cacti thrived, often blooming with massive bright pink and yellow flowers. With these memories in mind, I began designing my pouch. This is the outcome of that initial idea. (Years ago I designed Ariane Zurcher Jewelry, The Lotus Collection, which sprang from the same inspiration.)
If you are French, I have included the instructions in French, however they do not include the hyperlinks to all the threads, so refer to the English instructions for those links.

House of Embroidery is providing thread kits for their threads that are used in this pouch, with a discount.
The Thread Gatherer has also made a kit for all the threads used.
All of these links and many more are in the instruction PDF.
