Have you ever imagined what kind of sparks will be collided when we combine modern crossbody pouches with traditional hand embroidery? Will it be more casual or more retro? I believe it differs from person to person when you own a pretty pouch. If you are an office lady, who has retired from formal wear everyday, how about changing your style, and to try another style – crossbody pouch. 

What Needed?

Pouch, Thread, Hoop, Needle, Thread, Pen

Since we create patterns on the pouch, and it will be used many times, we better select a super material cloth. In that article, we chose the Cotton and Linen material, which is a little hard when touched , but has a better drape in daily use. 

Because the whole pouch is just about 5.9inch (about 15cm), it’s inappropriate to design a complex pattern, otherwise, the whole pouch will be very bloated. Sometimes, simple is the best. 

For the main part of the pouch, we use Thermal Transfer to print the girl, as for the tree branch, we use a water soluble pen to outline simple strokes. Of course, you can draw the whole pattern with a pen. According to your skill level. Next, what we need to embroider is the part of the leaves. It’s really very friendly for new hands. When stitching the leaves, we have many choices on stitches. Like fly stitch, fishbone stitch, satin stitch and chain stitch. For those leaves, the stitch we used is chain stitch.

The whole process will take about 10 minutes. Finally, tie up the colorful rope, and the cross-body pouch is finished. The whole capacity of the pouch is not plentiful, but it’s enough for cell phone, keys, tissue, etc.

01 Floss Embroidery Mirror

Since the mirror’s outer diameter is about 7cm, we need stitch patterns on small clothes. So, your pattern is as simple as possible and color matching is as little as possible. Ok, start with our DIY Crafts now. As usual, prepare the embroidery hoop and fix the embroidery cloth. I am accustomed to outline sketches with a water-based pen before stitching. Accordinging to the difference in pattern complexity, the whole embroidery process will take 3-6 hours. 

After finishing the main part, adjust the piece of cloth smoothly and wash the line with a pen.  Take out the round sheet of copper prepared in advance, use needle and floss to circle around the copper, cover the copper sheet with cloth. The back side can be exposed. As you can, cut off the extraedge, pay attention, do not cut down the thread.

Next, apply glue to the backside of the copper sheet evenly. You can use a stick as a tool. Immediately after, then stick the copper on the mirror, press tightly as you can. In order to stick better, I will use some books ,or other heavy objects pressed on, until they solid indivisible totally. I usually wait for 12 hours.

02 Ribbon Embroidery Mirror

The second mirror is more elegant and stereoscopic in style. It mixes two main materials: ribbon and beads. It’s more like French embroidery. With shelter from ribbon and beads, it’s hard to see the floss compared with the first mirror.  Use beads to draw the outline of leaves and white thin ribbon to shape flowers. After finishing the embroidery part, the rest of the progress is the same with floss mirrors. No more tautology here
