Sewing World Magazine ~ SewforSoul Feature!

Back to School Zipper Pouch ~ September 2015



September's Sewing World Magazine is in the shops now and features my 'Back to School' owl pencil case and coin purse. 



The main body of the purse was made with vintage fabric salvaged from a bag of rags at my mum's house (her local charity shop collects waste cloth ready for recycling).  She bought most of her fabrics back in the 1970s and 80s although we can't place this piece, does anyone else remember it?


As always, the published article includes full written instructions with easy to follow step-by-step photos;


I'm actually a little bit late blogging this feature as I try to ensure that the school holidays are 'family time', so it's now not long until the next issue of Sewing World Magazine and I'm delighted to see that I've got another two makes being published!

  2. Hi Josie, congratulations on another brilliant article. The owls are really cute and the pouches are beautiful. I don't have any fabric like this but I do have a sort of Indian cotton top that has a similar pattern. Thinking about it, it is probably from the 80's. :) X
