I’m not entirely sure what kind of pouch would suit me best, so I’m having fun experimenting with different shapes and sizes 😀 Hence this little number. This simple pouch has a subtly curved shape, but what gives it its depth is a bit of gathering at the bottom. I’ve chipped away at my stash of lining fabrics by giving it a thin polyester lining that’s sewn in via a French seam.
