Blog #54

This box was originally an ordinary cardboard box with bland black factory information as its only distinguishing feature. Bland no more, this nifty little box now features some of my more unique fairy tale fabrics. I used my Golden Unicorns fabric for the top, my Frog Prince II. fabric for the inside, and for the outer decoration I used my Strange Gold fabric.

(Just a small note, I still can't see what I'm shooting with my camera;  if some of the angles et cetera look strange, that's why.)

Here's a sweet frog I made using a free pattern by Purl Bee.
I scaled the pattern down to fit on an 8" x 8" swatch of fabric.

For the top portion, I used my Dandelions test swatch,
And I hand embroidered the little eyes.
Here's a view of the top.

And for the bottom of the frog, I used my Small Flowers in Golden Summer test swatch.

Here's a picture of the underside of the frog.
The frog is filled with rice since I didn't have any of the beans she suggested on hand.

Here is a small over-the-shoulder bag where I used my A Mouse and An Owl I. fabric.
You can see here where I whip stitched it onto the flap by hand after making the rest of the purse.
I finger knitted the long handle out of yarn and machine stitched it in place
I used an old button and some brown thread to create the closure.
