Sew Simple Fabric Pouches



Hello friends!  I'd like to share a simple little fabric pouch.  I've used a white flour sack towel and Aqua Baker's Twine.  Our local Dollar Store is always well stocked with towels and they work perfectly for small projects.  Using scrap pieces of the towel, I diecut flowers and added a vintage earring to the center.  To finish it up, I added a bit of fiber fill and some sweet treats.  Using a large needle, I made a loose gathering stitch at the top and then tied it shut with a bow.  I've used Aqua Baker's Twine from Really Reasonable Ribbon.     Before filling the bag, I stamped a vintage sewing machine and sentiment.  The sweet "Material Girl" stamp set is Crafty Secrets and is ON SALE!

Simply beautiful Jan.
I've read of such towels but unsure that we have them in the U.K. Anyway, adore your project.
