"Flowers... are a proud assertion that a ray of beauty outvalues all the utilities of the world. "
Ralf Waldo Emerson
The pattern for this little pouch comes from the colourful Atsuko Matsuyama book "Happy Flower Quilts". The title itself is charging, and happiness-metre goes crazy when you look at the cover. It really is one vibrant presentation of what to expect, before you open the book. When I received my copy, I needed to spend minutes in admiration, felt thirsty for more, but did not want to run fast through the pages. Hypnotic projects, addictive prints and many, many patterns.
I chose this one to start with, just because I couldn't resist the scalloped pattern on one of the sides of the pouch.
