Matroyshka Pouches

I love the new Kokka Folk Dolls fabric I bought recently from Fancy Moon. I was a little sad to cut it to be honest, but I am glad I did. I made a couple of lovely good sized pouches, I added the cotton lace and ribbon as it has a kind of folky feel to it and added some of my precious buttons.

I scoured my stash for some of the last of my little milliefiori hearts to add to the zip pulls.



I really don't want to part with these, I do love russian dolls. I made another lovely thing with this fabric I will share that once I finish it off, need to pop to the supermarket first...

That fabric really is amazingly cute. The lining is gorgeous too - do you remember where it came from?

They look beautiful as toilet bags but I can understand why you were so reluctant to cut the fabric. Stunning! xx

Ooo, I was jealous of this fabric when you showed it. I love your embellishments!
Can you show us how you do the zip pulls for your pouches? I'm always taking the zipper apart to attach a bigger pull, and then I just tie fabric through it, but I love the little beads, etc. you stick on there.

Thanks lovely ladies!
Alex the lining is a vintage double bed sheet I found at a charity shop ages ago.
Bethany, I will do a tutorial for the beaded zip pulls soon I promise.

Ok, it may surprise you but I avoid anything matryoshka because it's so common in the handmade bags market. I used to lust over these dolls fabric in my early days! But you managed to make the fabric special by adding the little lacing, ribbon and buttons.
