we picked up our mail this morning and out popped the best kind of surprise! meredith of olivia jane handcrafted sent us this STUNNINGLY BEAUTIFUL pouch in the mail. we’re in total awe of the worksmanship and level of detail!
it features a liberty’s tiny poppytot print, a buttery soft leather bottom, a beautiful brass zipper, padded all over for a luxurious feel . . .
. . . and what a touch those whimsical chambray dots and the interior pocket are!
it seems so cozy inside . . . that some mini skeins from rhichard devrieze just wanted to snuggle up inside. thank you meredith!!!!
meredith has a few of these left in her etsy shop. she sold out of the first few batches but if you’re lucky and fast enough, you might just be able to snag one for yourself! run….don’t stop!
UPDATE: the last one just went! but if you send her a note and beg really hard, she might just be able to whip one up for you.

we like to think of ourselves as peripatetic crafters! sometime last year or was it the year before, we came across atelier brunette while wandering the streets of paris! a new and delightful fabric line started by annabelle k. that is both designed in-house and by the very talented fifi mandirac.
