To the above, I also added some magnetic snaps, a fat quarter, and some crushed walnut shells for stuffing pincushions. My drawstring pouch almost didn't close...
Based on my partner's mosaic, I picked pinks, oranges, and browns from my stash for the pouch. I would have liked to use some nautical print (she had a lot of mermaids), but I don't have anything like that in my stash, so no go. Sorry, partner.
In exchange, I received this awesome pouch from Kristin. As an added bonus, my birthday was earlier this week, so the timing was perfect.
My mosaic was pretty unfocused, so Kristin did a great job filtering and making something that's totally me.
And she filled it with some great goodies.
That Robert Kaufman fabric on top is my favorite. I remember oogling at it when it came out. I've been dying to make a frame purse, so that's perfect. And I need a pincushion but have been too lazy to make one, so this one is great. Plus she included a few of those long, skinny pins I've been wanting to try! I'm really impressed with how well Kristin nailed it. Thank you!
