So I decided to make my own pouch made in a similar way......
I cut two pieces of white synthetic leather of the same size. Then using white silk I made blooms. The blooms are made by first, cutting an even circle.
Then using a gather stitch, carefully hand sew around the circle 4mm (0.16in) form the raw edge.
Draw up the threads to gather the edges of the circle until they're touching the centre
Pass the needle through the centre of the puff and fasten it to the back to finish
