Made with love

I wanted to share this sweet and easy purse I crocheted on Saturday for A, one of the clever Speech and Language Therapists whom I have the privilege of working with. She is moving on to new and exciting ventures in her life and we shall all miss her very much at work but hope she will pop in and keep in touch with us as time passes by.

I used this lovely easy and straight forward pattern from Lionbrand here (you will have to register with the website to access the free patterns) and enjoyed each and every stitch.

I enjoyed hand stitching this floral fabric to form an inner lining. I love the therapeutic effect that the rhythm of hand stitching brings.

I stitched this little tag into the lining which I thought would be appropriate for A who is following her dreams.

Last, but not least I sewed this pretty ceramic heart shaped button on to complete the little purse. I do hope she likes it.

It was made with love xox

  5. The purse is lovely that Swedish merino looks lovely and such jewel colours, the lining just finishes it off perfectly.

    Don't know how I've missed the last couple of posts, but after quickly catching up wanted to say how pretty your snail scarf is and your pics of Penny's cotton make me more tempted, they are cheerful aren't they? I do hope you kitchen is more done than not now and that baking will resume quickly!

  6. It's lovely, I'm sure she will cherish it :D

  7. What a gorgeous gift - I'm sure she will be really touched. I love the button - it goes perfectly. X

  8. ...and oh, so obvious that it was made with love!
