I made these pouches from a vintage Irish linen tea towel which featured some great colourful images of the 1977 Queen's Jubilee. I have sewn them on to navy cotton taken from a pair of chino trousers, lined them with yellow and white striped cotton, and each one fastens with a blue zip. There are two scenes now available (see below).
You can use these pouches for loads of different things. I use mine to bring some sort of order to all the flotsam and jetsam that swills around in the bottom of my bag. Make-up, travel cards, odd coins, lipsticks etc. They will be good for ipods and other small bits of technology you may have.
Please state which you'd like when you order. The remaining scenes left feature:
All are illustrated in the second photograph, but I'm happy to send a close-up snapshot of any particular one you're interested in.

Handmade in Hammersmith pouch no. 379
These old Irish linen tea towels are fantastic. Every charity shop in the land seems to have a small section devoted to them - often completely unused - and they usually feature very brightly coloured scenes of whatever they are depicting (The Pennine Way? The Wives of Henry VIII? Birds of New Zealand?) and make great little retro style pouches and bags.
