Working toward a possible craft show in December, my fingers are punching each and every day!

A collection of 'petite pockets' seem to be in the offing.  I've begun with this happy design.  I love the colors of green, coral and soft yellow and it was a joy to work with them.

As with the heart design, I will be using the center front to put in designs - some punched, some found objects, some miniature stitcheries.  I hope to stick something into each bag -- perhaps just some tissue paper or some paper flowers, or some candy... any suggestions will be more than welcome.

For awhile, I shall be punching pockets -- we'll see what I come up with.  Thanks for joining me on this part of my journey.

  1. This pocket is so festive, indeed reminds me of confetti raining down at a party! I bet these will be very popular at the craft show. Since it's in December, how about doing a couple in Christmas colors and allowing putting some candy canes inside? I can see them peeking out the top.

  2. Perfect name for this wonderful creation. I think you should do very well with these. I absolutely adore and treasure the one that I have.

  3. Pretty little thing!

    ...what size needle are you using?...

  4. You will surely have great success at the craft show with you lovely designs and beautiful punching.

  5. It is a very cheerful design - good work!

  6. Ohhhh YAY, I am so pleased you are going to do this, Penny!
    None of the pictures ever do them justice because they are so tactile-y wonderful in person and so beautifully made...
    Shall be following your exploits, for certain!
