Handmade Recycled French Flowers Pouch

Handmade Recycled French Flowers Pouch

Love this


I made this pouch from a recycled curtain that I found in Sauveterre de Bearn in the French Pyrenees. A great deal of internet searching has not revealed the actual vintage but the side of the fabric says it is 'édité par Marignan pour Florine'. The plain white background features pale green leaves and pink flowers with pink stripes. I have lined it with white cotton taken from a curtain lining found in Bridport in Dorset and it fastens at the top with a zip and pink and white ribbon zip-pull tag.

You can use this pouch for lots 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 bags. Make-up, travel cards, credit cards, odd coins, ipods, lipsticks etc. It would make a good cosmetics bag, or (if you are very efficient and neat with little bottles of things) an overnight toiletries kit.

Because each of my pouches started as something else (a wool kilt, a tweed jacket, a cotton shirt) they come with a unique numbered card that shows what they used to be, and where they came from – a sort of pouch birth certificate.
