Candle Gift Pouch

A month or so ago, I became unwell at work and was taken to A&E. A couple of my friendly colleagues came with me and made sure I was okay and managed to get my partner to me as well. The next day, feeling slightly less like I’d been run over, I decided to make something to say thank you.

I absolutely love candles, especially flowery-smelling ones, and had a few in the house in little holders. To make them prettier I designed a little pouch to put them and present them. My friends loved them and, after some further testing, I’m happy to bring you my little pouch pattern!

This pattern was made to hold a small candle in a little holder but could be used as a pouch for sweets or other small items. The limit is your imagination… and the size of the pouch!
