I have pinched this French word as I think it sounds like 'posh-on' ;-) and I quite like that cheeky little name for my little gift that has got to Debby (stitchwizard) . This has gone to live far, far away in Texas US and is a combined thank-you and cheer up gift to Debby who is such a nice lady :-)) Sounds like it has worked too and that makes me so happy to know :-)) Do you want to see what is in Debby's Pochon ;-) then look below ........
A little Pinkeep and Fob , I have used last years Prairie Schooler freebie design from Spring but changed the linen colour and thread colours. This photo above shows them about actual size.
Above now you can see the fob a bit closer , I stitched our initials and used the little bunny and flower from the main design.
This is the backing fabrics that I used from the Moda Blackbird Designs 'Madeira' collection, I think they all go so nicely together to be the same but different. Then finally below, the little set as a whole.
I used a spotty fabric to line the bag and make the cuff to that I added a piece of vintage gold lace. Other little details are brown silk ribbon to all pieces for finishing, including the bag handle and small wooden beads to the sides of the bag where the handle is attached. I added a teeny tiny pink silk bow to the 'For Debby' label.
Thank-you for all the lovely comments on my last posting, it is nice to know some of you still pass by my little corner. I think you have all done some wonderful stitching and finishing and been so busy with your needles, I must say I really enjoyed looking again at all your work !!! I was busy busy today but not with my needle. I shall have to snap back into action as I should really get a couple of teacher gifts for my DD and DS , of some description, done ready for next week !! :-))
Right , on that note, I had better get to bed and get thinking!!
BTW my lack of links lately is I have forgotten how to do them and it is too late for me to go to an old posting to look it up ! Links are in my sidebar though if you want them :-))
