DIY pocket purse kit: ochre
This sweet kit includes inspiration, materials and instructions to embroider and sew one pocket purse out of ochre plant-dyed organic cotton/hemp. The kit includes a full page of original Kata Golda drawings along with photos to inspire creative stitching, so you can create a purse that suits your style. Each kit includes a piece of tea-dyed organic cotton-hemp fabric that can be used for a contrasting side, patches, or a pocket. The kit is packaged in a simple muslin bag that you can use to carry your project.
This perfect little purse can be worn cross-body, over your shoulder, or around your waist as a pocket. The finished purse measures 7” tall and 5.5” at the bottom, with a slight taper to the top to a 4.5” opening; two cotton twill straps measure 27” each. Delicate wash, line dry.
