Let's start with an oldie, but a goodie shall we? Back in Sept the lovely Nicky ran a super swap called Stamp It Up! We were each to carve eraser stamps and make some small creation for our swap partner based on their inspirational mosaic. So I gathered together my erasers, brand new ink pads and got down to business.
I then embroidered little eyes and legs on my new friends. I loved doing that. At the end I felt like I knew each of the little ladies personally.
My partner, now revealed as Anneliese, had wanted a coffee cozy to keep her fingers from getting burned when holding a takeaway coffee. I read through a few tutorials and choose one to try. Although the tutorial was relatively straight forward and logical, the measurements listed were COMPLETELY incorrect, so my miserable cozy ended up looking like this.
I used Essex linen on the top and back, then Kate Spain's Good Fortune on the bottom and as the lining. I liked that I was sending a bit of Good Fortune to Anneliese and her home.
My little stamped pouch has now safely arrived at its new home and is already in use. I hope you like it, Anneliese! I really enjoyed making it for you.
