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’.

This was done for my younger nephew, He loves blue colour, the fabric is cotton with white polka dots, His name is Balaji, thus, the letter”B”.I did a small border in chicken scratch,with pearl cotton.

This one is for my Dear Hubby, The cloth is the same blue cotton,same threads,the border design alone I changed . The pouches were sewn by my tailor[ I am scared to start sewing, hoping for some divine intervention I suppose]

Today .Sharon has given details of” for the loving of stitching sampler band 112″. I was surprised becauseI was also working on curves today.I filled it with chain stitch,Once the piece is completed, I ‘ll post it on my blog.

I got this idea of designing lingerie pouch for the new couple.I used satin fabric for the bride and cream linen for the groom.
