Here's one I made earlier...
I made it before Christmas in fact, but I couldn't post a picture on here, as it was a Christmas present for a friend who reads this blog. But now I can show it off. It's a little sewing box, a bit inspired by the Cath Kidston one. I made it in my friend's favourite colours - predominantly browns, with other autumnal colours. Those are pins sticking in the roof - I thought they were so sweet when I found the pins with flowers and leaves on them.
I'm really pleased with how it turned out, as I've never made anything like this before. I didn't have a pattern - I just made it up as I went along.
I'm pretty proud of all the little details, like adding the flower & leaf beads. And I'm so glad to finally have something creative to show you. I feel like I haven't done much lately!
