|half of the 'lace' in between layers|
|pouch sewn together with 'lace' on the inside|
lace sewn on by tracing outlines; left is what will be seen on the outside.
|the final result; gilded edges and a handmade cord using Jude's technique; I think it could be a gift from a mother to a mother-to-be, the pouch might contain a lock of hair, after baby's first haircut, or teeth, who knows maybe the child will bring the mother feathers and flowers and she could keep those in her pouch, for safe keeping.....|

it's my birthday next sunday so they can do their utmost to make up for it then!
I'm glad you like the pouches, seeing as you're the Expert on pouches these days....
yourself???? i think you might
i used to do that with brushes
for a specific use....
Grace: the brushes modify themselves in my way od doing things, I use this one for detailed gilding....I also use my fingers which is slightly wasteful: miniscule gold dust bits become attached to them, but there you go my techniques are far from oerfect!
