Beauty Pretty Pouch

I've created some new things I'm calling Pretty Pouches. They are part shabby chic and part altered art, the way I see them. I love doing things with muslin bags, so I thought this would be fun for me. And I'll also be selling these in the store once we open.  This is my first one, called Beauty.

Beauty Shabby Chic Pouch

I started with a simple muslin bag and stamped on a fun image using blank ink. Then I sewed on some tatted-style lace and some ivory colored trim. Next I sewed on some burgundy colored ribbon flowers that have pearl accents. I just love this. It could be used for so many home decor, as a gift bag, or just a place to put some special items you might want to tuck away somewhere.  I know I'll be making lots of these!
