Pretty Handmades Book Showcase

Today is my turn on the "Pretty Handmades" Book Showcase.
Lauren's new book is is full of beautiful Felt and Fabric Sewing projects.

Each project is teamed with detailed and beginner friendly instructions.

I decided that my first project from Lauren's new book would be the

"Posie Patchwork Pouch" 

I enjoyed adding the Hand Quilting in a co-ordinating Aurifil Floss.

I also decided to make the tabs at each end a little bigger.

I didn't have a lace zip on hand so I have used a regular zip and added my lace to it and I also added a running stitch through the lace using the Aurifil Floss.

The August Liberty Society Bundle works so well with the Sparkle Essex Linen and Lauren's beautiful pattern.

Lauren, huge congratulations on your new book 
and thank you for being there for the chats during 
the writing process for both our books xx
