In the Pink

Just a short post today....I started taking pictures but the camera batteries were exhausted before I was halfway done so I'll save the other things I had to show for another time.
This is just a little set I've made using some pretty pink toile fabric that I fell in love with.
The drawstring bag pattern is by Gail Pan. I found a bead necklace on the market for just one Euro and pulled it apart to get the beads for the ribbon drawstring.
I also made a little scissor fob and a matching four patch pincushion. I just stitched a couple of the flowers from the embroidery design on the bag and I think it turned out nice. You can click on the pictures for a better view.

This pincushion is from Cinderberry Stitches pattern Stitched Trilogy

it was a bit hard to get the shape just so with this style of pincushion and I think I'd have preferred it if it had been a bit smaller but it was an enjoyable project to work on.

Sorry this is so short. I have lots of stuff in the works so will hopefully make up for it next time.

Finally, Pat is having a belated birthday giveaway draw.
Just pop over to Pat's blog and leave your comment for a chance to win. I have no idea what the prize is but, knowing Pat, it will be something very nice!
