I recently needed a birthday gift to give to a very special person in my life. Having difficulty coming up with an idea; I settled on a combination of handmade and a few little purchased goodies.
I chose an Amy Butler print that I knew she’d like because I had previously made her this. For the lining I used a Karen Lewis print. The project got off to a rocky start … oops
A little unpicking and re-arranging and I had it done:
I added a few goodies and I think it turned out pretty good.
I hope she likes it !
While I was in pouch making mode, I also made this little pouch for keeping my eyeglass cleaning solution and microfiber cloth in:
I haven’t been posting much lately because we’ve been busy on our farm with harvest.
The little tractor and grain cart on the right is usually where you find me these days. My daughter was home for the weekend so I was able to take this action shot of them ‘catching on the go’. My husband is operating the combine and is unloading the thrashed grain from the combine hopper while continuing to combine the standing wheat. Catching on the go saves a tremendous amount of time over the course of a season.
Thanks for having a look. Since the Amy Butler fabric is essentially a scrap left over from the insulated lunch bag project, I’ll be linking up with Nicky and Leanne for Scraptastic Tuesday.
