Tiny Treasure Pouches

This is a great way to use small pieces of fabric to make something delightful. In the recording below we show you how to make a unique necklace with a pouch to hold your precious mini trinkets close to your heart.

The complete piece is made from textiles found around the home and reminiscent of the Japanese Boro style of repair using small simple 'Sashiko' running stitches.
