Ticking Trends & Zipper Pouches

The use of ticking for decorative purposes is not a recent trend. Seventy years ago, the American decorating original, Sister Parish, made use of ticking fabric evoking a “cozy old-money, part opulent, part hand-me-down, English country house aesthetic. “¹  

An online perusal attests that ticking featured décor has not diminished, but rather expanded. Reminiscent of a more humble time, the clean simple lines and color tones of cotton ticking inspires a modern-vintage lure without kitsch.

I was so inspired that I recently had fun creating with ticking fabric and scrap cotton myself!  I made these small zipper pouches for storing a mobile or charger, cosmetics, or for organizing lose items in your backpack or tote bag.
