It has been a good week for crafting and I've really enjoyed the project that I've been working on. Step one was making the cross stitch gnome. This little guy is part of a pattern that comes from a Frosted Pumpkin sampler. The recipient loves gnomes, and I knew she was going to adore this!
But that was just the start of my gifty plan - I wanted to turn this into something that would be useful for a craft project. So, after looking through Pinterest, and my fabric stash, I decided on a flat-bottomed, lined, zipper pouch. The red polka dot fabric is Kaffe Fasset and the Green is a heavier weight linen mochi mochi dot. The pouch measures approx 10in wide x 7in high. with a 3 inch deep bottom - a great size for a sock knitting project.
I am super happy with the end result on this one. I can see more of these zipper pouches in my future - teacher gifts, travel accessories, storage for crayons, pencils, legos...
What have you worked on recently that has filled you with delight?
Hope you are having a fun weekend.
