The colour of the tweed I've used for these zipper pouches reminds me of 'crowdie and cream'. I like the Wikipedia defintion of 'crowdie' - 'The cheese is often eaten with oatcakes, and recommended before a ceilidh as it is said to alleviate the effects of whisky-drinking. That's a new one to me LOL!!
Anyway, I seem to be totally hooked on making zipper pouches at the moment and made these two on Monday - loved how the cosmetic pouch turned out, so made a little coin purse to keep it company :) I've actually managed to put them into the shop - hurray!I thought I'd completely run out of this tweed, but I found a little snippet of it. Added some of my vintage lace stash (must get some more!) and had some fun making crochet flowers. I lined them both in a natural linen fabric, which I also thought I'd run out of - there are some benefits to being a little bit chaotic eg. "Oh, I wondered where that had gone!!!" moments are very common when you don't have a defined workspace!
I'm sort of liking that description of 'crowdie and cream' - might just go and rename them in my shop listing, hehe! :)
Off to have some crowdie on an oatcake, so that I can go to a ceilidh and drink lots of whisky, in true Hebridean style - sounds like a good night out! (perhaps not at 9.30 am in the morning tho!)More creative peeps over here :)
Bye for now
