I was going to make Jo a card but I saw this one and loved the picture, perfect for a nautical themed swap
Jo is very crafty but I could see from her blog that she's a keen knitter, and has also started to crochet. I have bags of different crochet projects all over the place and like to try and keep all the bits and bobs together. I hoped Jo would feel the same so I made her a project bag.
I had some red fabric for the pocket in my stash, left over from a skirt I made last autumn. But the vision in my head needed boats and deckchairs so had the perfect excuse to go shopping!
Excuse the sorry photos! I stuffed the bag with my ratty old knitting equipment (it doesn't get much use!)
Don't you just love the little boats!
I made the pockets in various widths so Jo can securely store needles, hooks, scissors, patterns etc.
Another sorry photo but you can see the deckchair fabric on the inside
I top stitched everything in red, it seemed to look best
The little gift was a challenge but what stitcher doesn't need pins?
And if you have sail boats and deckchairs you obviously need sticks of rock!
The little labels are my favourite, and happily Jo loves them, I can't wait to see what makes she puts them in
