An initialed sachet

This sachet was made for my Dad to hold a vintage silk scarf we'd bought him for his birthday. It's made from an Ian Mankin stripe and lined with cotton lining fabric. I embroidered the initials, vintage crochet thread couched with cotton perle, onto some vintage linen. I also added three vintage mother of pearl buttons that all show signs of wear, the large one especially. I do like to reuse things that have already had a life elsewhere.

The vintage broderie anglais lace is, unusually, made from a woollen fabric. I've used a press stud to open and close the pouch, with a red vintage button added as decoration on the flap.

I'll be back again on Friday.


For a look at my workroom have a look at my Where Bloggers Create 2016 post, where you'll also find a link to the list of all of the bloggers taking part in this year's party.
