Spa Pouches

These beautiful natural-themed pouches are perfect for gifts - you can fill them with sea salt, Epsom salts, or bath beads to pamper a friend - and they look lovely on a vanity as well.  

Each pouch is made entirely in the hoop, in one hooping, with 9-10 color stops and less than 8600 stitches.  When it is finished stitching, cut it out, turn it right side out, fill it up, and snap it and tie it up and it's ready to go.  

I used regular quilters-weight cotton for the bottom, back, applique and lining and inexpensive transparent organza for the front (I originally purchased a lovely silk organza, but it was not transparent so it didn't work well).  The tab at the top is made from cork or marine vinyl.

And for the ties (which are added during the stitching so they are secure), you can use just about any thin flexible string: narrow ribbon, twine, fancy yarn, thin leather strips, cord, embroidery floss...etc.  The interior of the pouch is lined so there are no raw edges inside.

There are 9 files included - three different pouch designs in two sizes each (5x7 & 6x10) and the three badges are included separately for the 4x4 hoop in case you'd like to stitch them onto something else.  The finished pouches measure between 6" and 8" tall.

Please note these are machine embroidery in the hoop (ITH) designs, not sewing patterns, and they can only be used with an embroidery machine.  Some of these designs use purchased licensed clipart.
