Yesterday was full of family walks, a trip to the local church with the girls to look at 'wedding dresses through the ages', (mostly the 1980s, so many puffy sleeves!) and back home to make my needle case for the Sewn Spaces Swap.
We can post these here, on flickr and put our goodies in the mail any time before the end of the month, so once I receive a secret little extra I have ordered for my partner, this will be winging its way to...
... someone who requested 'Yellow'.
An inspiriation mosaic and a colour choice are all the secret partners have to go on, other than general stalking and lurking to make something we truly believe our partners would want.
So although I am pretty sure my partner doesn't read my blog, this is what I made for her...
I hope I got her 'right'! This is the first time I have attempted to make anything like this, so I am rather pleased that it turned out how I envisaged.
I kind of cobbled together the pattern from a few I had seen on flickr, it measures 3"x 4 6/8" closed. The fabrics are Feedsack - Yellow Blossoms by Sara Morgan and Alexander Henry's Farmdale Orchard print, both from last week's M is for Make haul, and topped with a couple of mother of pearl buttons from the local antique shop.
