Katheryne's Pouch

I had the opportunity to give this present to Katheryne in person, when she visited the Garden of Earthly Delights event. That is the best part of this - giving the final product away and making someone happy. It was nice to have an excuse to give her something. ;)

Here is first a picture of the second finished embroidery (as always, click to have a closer look.):

A detail, I'm very happy about the way the pelican turned out. Unfortunately the shine of the white silk doesn't show well in pictures:

The finished thing, both sides:

Embroidered with silk on linen, split stitch and laid work. The upper part of the pouch as well as it's lining are silk. The cord is also made with silk. I run out of silk thread, so I could not make nicer finger loop braiding cords. Some tassels would have been nice as well, but it'll do without them. The size of the pouch is about 15x22cm


  1. I don't know if you and I got to meet at the event, but I saw the pouch when she was showing it off, and it is truly lovely!

  2. Thank you!

    Did we meet? I don't know. I was the one who was hiding her table in the corner near the tavern.

  3. It is a fantastic pouch and a fantastic gift! I LOVE my new pouch and I kept it with me at all times after I recieved it from you! <3

  4. This pouch is so gorgeus that it is in top 5 of prettiest things I have ever seen. The pouch you made for Helena is also in that top 5 categoria!! WOW!

  5. Eva: Thanks. Nice to know that you like my work.

  6. And this thing ate my response to Katheryn... A new try:

    I'm glad you like it! Let it rest a while sometimes, though. We don't want it to get tired. :-)
