These are the few pouches made in satin cloth,

satin-1 Akka

I felt satin cloth would be a ideal fabric for lingerie pouch, This peach satin, was fot my sister[Akka], the pattern is from an old embroidery pattern book,  which I modified to suit the pouch template. the monogram “V'”for Veena,was from antique pattern library .But I made a mistake [the letter is reversed], which I found out only after the piece was completed.I used the same colour lace for all the pouches, I also used some beads of same colour.

This pouch was for my sister in law[Manni], brother’s wife. “R” is for Revathi, She always likes thick embroidery, I used mostly satin stitch  for this piece Floral pattern modified from old embroidery book,and the monogram fron APL.

This was the pouch I  made for myself .I just changed the laces to differentiate  the pouches, My tailor of course made a very good job of these pieces, It was not easy to embroider on satin with a embroidery hoop, the tension of the hoop distorts the satin, it is more so in light colours.Handloom cotton was used for lining.After browsing through the net for personalised embroidery gifts I hit on these ideas of lingerie pouches and towel edgings. The towel edgings will be on my next post,I better grind some batter for  ‘vada’   for tomorrow ‘s festival – Vinayaga chadhurthi’.
