The ouch pouch

Recently I have started to make a few frame purses again and a few other beautiful yet practical small craft items that are ideal gifts for the upcoming Christmas season. You know the sort of stuff I did for the craft fair that I attended in 2012. I was going to be at the Kew Christmas fair but had to pull out due some family related issues.

But that isn't going to stop me producing a few things that I will be putting into my Etsy shop bit by bit.

So meet the 'ouch pouch'.  This has got to be one of the cutest things I ever made and it is not only lovely and funny but also practical. The idea though isn't entirely mine but stems from Nova from 'a cuppa and a catchup who a while ago made a draw-string bag embroidered with 'ouch-pouch' for one of her relatives who went of to university.

For my 'ouch pouch' I used really strong vintage linen that I have still from my grandmother and appliqued a red cross on one side and embroidered 'ouch pouch' on the other side. 

This purse is made using one of my larger frames (6" by 2.5") and is just perfect for a small travel medic kit because you can put quite a bit in there due to its wide opening. 

And I thought a cotton lining with a scissors pattern would work well with the 'ouch' theme.
You can buy the 'ouch pouch' in the shop under this listing.


Thank you for your comments! I love reading them and will answer every question you have on my projects. But I have a very busy daytime job and am therefore not able to thank each and every comment. Please don't be offended if I won't reply.
