Designer’s Notes

“This pouch measures approx 7cm x 10cm and is the perfect size for a foil-wrapped chocolate heart from Marks & Spencer. I made it as a mother’s day gift for my mum, Julie Romeo. If you’re ever passing through Wells in Somerset, pop into her shop – the cool and crafty Earthcraft -- on Priory Road”
