As I first saw my pictures at Pinterest I was rather appalled. "Oh, no, they are harvesting my babies!" was my first thought. Then I thought about my conviction that you get what you give and it is so true! How many amazing patterns and ideas have I collected myself, sometimes even without a thank you line!
I'm greatful for all the generous people who contribute to the greater good with their time and gifts. My own contribution seems so small in comparison.
That said I want to show you a small fabric gift pouch. It is easy to make and doesn't take much time. Well, perhaps a bit more than 5 minutes, but something along these lines.
Cute isn't it? I made three, just because they were so cute. I haven't the slightest idea what to use them for. The pouches are small and the hole in the middle doesn't close well because of the fabric bulk. I'll probably end up giving them away. You find the pattern here: Fabric Gift Pouch
I did also make a seahorse pillow. It takes a couple of hours to make, so its a bit more complicated than the fabric gift pouch, but it's fun to make. I just saw that I shoud have made a vertical seam in the middle as well, but somehow missed it. Next time I'll make one out of velvet.
The pillow is rather big, over 2 feet, but you cannot really use it as a pillow. Here is the pattern: seahorse pillow
I do hope mastutake will write the instructions for the other two pillows as well.
