Pochette à ouvrage

Just lately I've been getting a lot of inspiration from French blogs - I love their style. We used to get a French cross-stitch magazine here in the UK but I haven't seen it for a couple of years. I find that the cross-stitch magazines we get here aren't very sophisticated in the designs they contain. Anyway, knowing how I love this French look my dear husband has ordered a cross-stitch book for me, it's called Made in France (of course!). Hope it arrives soon.

I'm up to date now with all my swap commitments and I'm wondering what to make next. I bought a bargain length of fabric a couple of months ago, it was only £3.75 for 3 yards, and I want to make something, anything really, with it. I can see me making another set like the one above. I saw a little pouch containing soap (pochette de savon) told you I was going all French! So perhaps I could make some of these pouches to put soap in and give them as gifts.
