Pay it forward went round facebook a while ago and as I enjoy participating, I gave it ago. I had 2 responses and here's what I made them!
This is a knitting needle roll, made to my own design in purple satin dupion (with the matt side showing) and lined with a white quilting weight cotton. It's trimmed with white satin bias binding and a purple ribbon tie.
It has gone to it's new home in London and seems to have been well received!
The next gift hasn't travelled nearly as far!
This is a tiny knitted pouch. The pattern is from the book '30 minute knits' but I have to confess it took me a lot longer than 30 minutes! I am a very slow knitter it would seem.
The embroidery on the front is a free handed Queen Anne's Lace and I trimmed it with a snippet of gold ribbon that matched the embroidery.
As this blog might show, I really do enjoy giving homemade gifts!
