After several days of stitching and YouTube videos learning French knots and chain stitches, my mini pouch is complete!
I bought a 10” green zipper on Amazon and most of the thread from Herrschners online. Most of the fabric stores I went to didn’t have the all the colors I needed.
The pattern transfer paper I used ended up working out nicely. I placed the entire embroidered cloth under water and slowly scrubbed to dissolve the paper. It cleaned up very quickly and plan to use the same method for my next project. I’m off to use my pouch (more like a clutch) for the first time!
