When I am on vacation I always search out local quilting, sewing, craft and yarn stores. My favourite type of souvenir is craft supplies or sewing books/magazines – especially love items that are hard to find in Australia. On a trip to South Korea two years ago, I discovered a shop selling Daily Like supplies and I treated myself to some fabric.
My latest Flower Power Pouch features gorgeous Daily Like cotton fabric and reminds me of a wonderful holiday.
Some of the other items I have found when travelling vintage haberdashery and wooden spools from Parisian flea markets.
I loved exploring the fabric/quilt shops in Japan and found many unique supplies.
Have you found any treasures when travelling?
You can find the beginner friendly pdf pattern for the Flower Power Pouch in our Etsy store. It is perfectly sized to hold a small gift, a bento box, or other supplies. Such a fun pattern to sew in an afternoon.
