|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.
