The Huisinis Pouch
In my article ‘Incubation in the creative process’ I did a brief presentation of the new collection of pouches I made lately.
When I dye with a new plant, I always try it first on cotton fabric. To discover the colour and if it is going to last (I practice a light test to see if the colour fade after 1 week under direct natural light exposure). Once it passed the test I make project with them. In September 2021, I include them in an Embroidery and Sewing Kit I created for beginners (available here).
Last year I made a quilted blanket for my nephew.
This year I am making pouches for you. Combining the colours have been a great source of joy for me. There is many possibilities and I had to restrain myself to not keep them all.
Outside they are made with natural dyed cotton. On the front side, 3 designs are available. On the back side, only one colour. Inside I used my favourite fabric I am using since the beginning of Dragons Are Real: the 100 year old linen ! There isn’t the usual label outside but a unique stamped and hand written identification inside.
The design and size are thought to be a handy and multipurpose pouch: big enough for pencils and a little notebook. To keep make up with you, to carry tablets, pads, tissue wherever you go. Small enough to be held in one hand, to be kept in a handbag, in a drawer, in a box.
It measures 21x15 cm and it is closed with a zip.
These pouches are now available in the collection “The Hebridean Dye”
