"T" is for Terry

Ruffled terry cloth pouches.




Perfect for your personal products:



I used a similar method to Kate's tutorial here at see kate sew.


 These pouches measure (9"w x 6"h) are lined with interfacing to help keep the shape and have squared bottom corners.


The ruffle matches the lining and is cut on the bias to keep from fraying too much although I think the unfinished edge of the ruffle actually adds to the fluffy feel of the pouch.


I monogrammed this one, perfect for a spa gift or bridal shower favor.


But I think the ruffles are too cute:


And I made a mini pouch for little girls:


This one measures 5"w x 4"h and closes with velcro.


A little hiding place for all those kid sized toiletries.



And even those these aren't terry cloth I thought I'd give you a little peek:



Pretty sure they're going to the shop space.




And I'm all pouched out for now!


Maybe a good idea for end of the year teacher's gifts with a little sunscreen and iced coffee gift card?

Cool idea! I love the idea of using them for a spa gift and tucking little bath/beauty products inside.

These are REALLY cute! I love that you mixed things up and used terry cloth. I just might have to conquer my fear of zippers to try this! Seriously, so cute.

Those are so fun! If I could get over my fear of zippers, I would make some too.

Morgane @ Bear,Dolly and Moi said...

beautiful pouches, I love the simplicity and the elegance of the terry cloth version, even the mini with the applique, so cute!
The non terry cloth ones are also perfect, I see more sewing pouches in my future!
keep making them!
