Finished measurements

Approximately 6" x 4" [14.5 x 10.2 cm]

A modern take on the Japanese Boro and Sashiko stitching styles, this small pouch is perfect for notions, make up, change, or whatever items are currently tumbling around on the bottom of your purse. This is a great stash buster project, as favorite fabric scraps can be used as patchwork pieces or appliques. Use a simple running stitch to create additional texture without taking away from the natural beauty of the linen fabrics. Mix and match to create your own one of a kind pouch. These pouches only require a small amount of fabric, so it is best to use scraps you have on hand, or else treat yourself to a few yards of your fabric fabrics and make some for friends!
