I snagged a yard of linen today for only $3.00 thanks to a little stain in the selvedge corner. And, since I'm super-instant-gratification girl, I wanted to do something with it rightnowrightnowrightnow.
Luckily, I thought better of it and decided on a test run using an unbleached cotton that is linen-y looking. I came up with a pouch that was so great looking in my head, and this here is the third attempt at actually getting it right.
This side is what I wanted. The other side, the one I couldn't bear to photo, has one strip of white that somehow is quite a bit larger than the other. Some type of slippage, I'd assume. I really, really like it though, so I'll keep going.
