When I enter swaps I spend a lot of time thinking of what I will make and none thinking what will come to me. Yesterday, not one but two pouches in the post. The first from Krista of Spotted Stone Studio
Wow, I am so lucky! This was one of the first pouch to have a photo posted in the Pretty Little Pouch Swap on Flickr and I admired it straightaway. Great colours, hand stitches, beautiful fabrics, attention to little details- did you notice the little owl zip pull? And lovely fabrics and handmade goodness inside.
Lining: behind the grey and orange pocket is a lovely yellow grid check.
Close up: I love that dotty tag and those citrus cross stitches, and the shot grey fabric is tactile and practical. It is a biggie as well, big enough to store my Ipod, phone and mini change purse on a day out! I love it Krista, thankyou so much!
And sneaking into the same postage pile was this little beauty from Ali of A Squared. These are my favourite prints from the new Denyse Schmidt range so it couldn't be a better fabric choice and this nifty little pouch can carry my essentials- lip balm, swiss army card of tools, aspirin and forehead stick!
A big thankyou to Ali x
She sent this pouch as part of Pay it Forward, I was one of the first 3 commenters to respond so I received this cute pouch. My turn to continue the giving, the first 3 commenters on this post will have a little something made for them- pin cushion perhaps? Please make sure I can contact you! I have up to a year to do this but I am guessing I'll be making things for you sooner rather than later, I like to get things done. You part of the bargain is to Pay it Forward- once you receive your gift from me you will then make something for 3 more people, and so it continues...
