Vreni has her present! Yay!

Finally I can show you what I made for Vreni!

She received it today in the mail and says she likes it very much…

img_2404 It is a pin cushion, just like the one I got from Dear Fii, except it isn’t a wrist style and I made it a bit bigger. It is also double sided!

img_2410The pin cushion looks a little lonely, don’t you think? So, I also made matching thread wallets…

img_2407I had been keeping my threads in a sandwich bag, but I think this is much neater!

It was super easy to make, if you would like a tute I can work one up. (Just add it to the ever growing pile – what about the checker board tute I was meant to do? It is half done on my design wall…should finish that.)

Be happy,
Jess

Yes, I do indeed love all my gifts I got from Jess! They are so pretty, so beautifully made and really handy. I like gifts which can be used and don't just disappears into a cupboard! Now I just have to get a wiggle on and do my part of our little swap. I never thought I would have so much fun in "blog land". Thanks Jess!

Very clever thread holder, is that the clear plastic you've used?
