Petal power 

I’ve spent a few years looking for a craft magazine which I actually enjoy. I stumbled across Making last year, and I’m in love! I even bought the back issues so I’ll have a complete collection.

Here are some “petal pouches”, from issue 1: “Flora”. I made these as part of Operation Christmas 2017 in a bit of a production line, but they’ve turned out pretty well.

The first set is made from Nani Iro linen (blue floral – which you may recognise from this favourite dress) and double gauze (white floral).

The second set is from my remaining Martha Negley feathers fabric (you can actually see some matching cushions in the photos, but I mostly made this skirt which I never wear) and Liberty poplin with little pencils. The poplin is great – really crisp and rigid and great to sew, but also thin.

Needless to say I’ve subscribed to Making for another year and can’t wait to see what’s in store! And meanwhile, I hope these petal pouches are loved by their recipients (because if not, I definitely want them back!).
