Believe it or not this super-cute pattern was the first pattern I released for sale - almost 10 years ago!! Say what?!! That's quite a chunk of time.
The Kyoko Pouch pattern is an enduring customer fave - with many of them being made for weddings, parties, dates and the like. We thought it was high time that this lovely pattern was given a modern pep-up. I must say, I am bowled over by the bag style photography skills of the U-Handbag girls. Their efforts will make a great, future behind the scenes blog post.
Features we love:
- Perfect for weddings and special occasions (it has feminine, dainty looks, yet it is roomy)
- Hold by the handles or pop on a chain or strap and the pouch becomes a cute day-bag
- Stable flat-bottom for easier bag rummaging
- Easy to put together (pretty frame, with NO gluing required)
Finished size = 7in (W) x 7 1/2in (H) x 4in (D) (18cm x 19cm x 10cm)
Try making this pouch in cottons, linens, or wools for a pretty day bag. Or try making this pouch in satins, silks or velvets (and adding a flower corsage) for a gorgeous wedding, party or special occasion bag. Yum!
The one of the best things about sewing is that with your choice of fabrics items looks so different. I've seen the Kyoko pouch in ditsy flowers, tweed wool and damask satin and - we think and this version of the Pouch looks striking and uber-stylish in Ellen Luckett Baker's Half Rounds fabric.
I think the colour-block dress is also rocking it too!
