New Boutis Pouch

Winston loves anything to do with sewing and often helps out when working on projects

You can see he is a big encouragement !

Our Guild retreat sets a theme as a challenge each year - at the last retreat the theme of Dresden Plate was chosen, and three of us have made a small boutis pouch with a Dresden plate pattern.  I used a batiste on the top, and apple green cotton underneath and for the front - so pale green shows through the batiste.  Roni and Janet have almost finished theirs, so will show pictures of theirs soon.

The pattern was originally offered in the Fil Blanc of France Boutis, design adapted from Hiromi, a pattern with birds in a nest drawn by Isabelle, and the directions (French version) written by Lou and translated by me - so a real group effort !

Very beautiful! I really love this design. I think that simple design needs thorough work. This is perfect work. ...and Winston, you are surely great encouragement!
