I made this two weeks ago and have been using it quite successfully since. How the weeks have flown. A reversible linen/cotton zakka-style pouch with influences from various sources but made it up as I went along. Actually, I used one of Coco’s toys to trace around for the circular bottom as a starting point! It was the perfect size, then desperately tried to remember some schoolgirl maths, which failed me and had to ask DH (with the BSc in Maths) for the formula. Is it rushing to you? Well, if not, it’s pi x the diameter of your circle plus seam allowance.
As I wanted to use this for small knitting/sewing projects, I wanted it fairly strong and with an internal pocket for scissors/pencil/tape measure. I kept thinking that needles would end up getting pushed through one layer of linen. It was really quick to make and the tabs were an easy option to use for the closure and being drawn in by some lovely red grosgrain ribbon.
