Just a heads-up that I’ll be adding some pouches and cowls to the shop this time tomorrow- that’s at 6pm Saturday, Glasgow time…
Over the past six months, I’ve been blessed to have a steady stream of people hand their much-loved tweed or woollen garments over in the hope that what is no longer wearable may have a second life as a pouch. I’m always intrigued by the stories behind these fabrics and like to bring them to mind as I work with the fabric- evoking the memories held in them feels important to me.
Within this run of pouches are treasured pieces from a lovely friend, Anna (more on her lovely Penguin book next week), including some skirts made and worn by her Oma (so lovely to see the hand-stitching and marks of life) and a commercial Munrospun skirt (lovely to see one of these after writing this post).

There are also pouches made from the seat covers from a Scottish camper van- with the occasional dog hair included!

And some from one of my favourite old Harris Tweed jackets…

And there are a few new colourways in my favourite cowl patterns too…

All are up in the shop already but marked as coming soon if you are interested in having a sneak peek. And I look forward to showing you more of the lovely fabrics I’ve been given recently over the coming weeks…
Hoping you have a lovely weekend!
