June's Gifted Gorgeousness

It's time for June's Gifted Gorgeousness post, as organised by Jo from Serendipitous Stitching, where we show our gifted related stitching and crafting.
This month I'm sharing a travel pouch I've made for Naomi. 


The fabrics are from the "vacation" range by Makower. I made this pouch same way as the ones in this post, following the tutorial from SewCanShe, with the following slight alterations. I put it together with the short edge as the bottom rather than the long edge, made it a little over an inch bigger in each direction than in the instructions in order to fit a passport into it, but used the same size zip as given (extended with a strip of fabric). This means that it doesn't unzip right to the very bottom, which I thought would be more secure.
I also changed the configuration of the inside pockets (very hard to hold it open and take a picture of the inside at the same time by the way!)


It is meant to have a matching wrist strap attached by a carbine clip, but I'm waiting for the ribbon clamps to come so I'll have to add that later

Thanks for taking part in GG this month. Great little pouch for a passport, where is the World Traveller off to? Or just preparing to emigrate if it goes wrong on the 23rd?

It is beautiful, Christine! Love the images on the fabric. I have a question for you. Do you mind if your work is pinned to pinterest? I saw some gorgeous jeans hearts you made, but would like to know first if you do mind before I'm (re)pinning anything. Wishing you a beautiful day, xx Wen of AppleApricot
