Show & Tell - A House Pouch

Hi Lovelies,

How's your new year going?  Have you gotten stuck into some new projects?  Working on finishing some old ones?  Or just having a break?  I've been itching to get stuck into something... but too many other things keep cropping up : ) One of those things is a rainbow dress for my soon to be 5-year old... any suggestions anyone?

Show & Tell Thursday's

Last year I made this little pouch for Miriam as part of the Advent Swap.

I saw the pattern in Cat's copy of Zakka Style.  And Miriam loves little houses.  Done.
It was my second attempt at a zip...  and I think the pattern and I will agree to disagree on the correct size needed but I think it turned out ok in the end...

And it was lined with some gorgeous fabric from Deb's shop.  I was a little in love with it by the time it was done : )  And it has been received with great warmth and enthusiasm - yay!

Dont forget our giveaway for January!  Some fabric and a few other items are on offer to anyone who has linked up during the month - sponsored by lovely Lisa from Lydia's Treasures.

Looking forward to seeing what you've been working on.  Thanks for linking up and visiting!
