DIY pocket purse kit: terracotta

$ 28.00

This sweet kit includes inspiration, materials and instructions to embroider and sew one pocket purse out of terracotta 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. 

Kit includes:
  • [2] 6.5 x 8” pieces of plant-dyed organic cotton/hemp fabric
  • [1] 6.5 x 8” piece of tea dyed organic cotton/hemp fabric
  • 6 colors (1 yard each) of cotton embroidery floss
  • 2 yards plus [2] 5” pieces of ¾” cotton twill tape
  • 8 straight pins & a hand-sewing needle
  • illustrations for embroidery inspiration, tracing paper & template
