I am nearly done with my book, and can’t wait to send everything in this week! I realized that I never shared my tiny bit of handmade gifting here – and wanted to, before it’s any later!
These blocks measure 3 1/2″ square, and were paper pieced for precision. I just love how crisp all the corners are when paper-pieced!
I had this idea for for a zip pouch for a while, and wanted to show off the prints with the subtle background. I also think the size is perfect, for just about anything! Prints are Clover Sunshine, the background, Essex yarn-dyed in black. I finished up these teacher gifts late the night before the last day of school, added a few extra bits and they were well received.
I made a second batch on Christmas eve, and still have a number of them waiting to be made into pouches. Including one for myself! But picking a favorite is hard…there might be a mini of these in my future too – they are just so fun to make!
More soon -
