A little gift

2016_04_12_01

One of the benefits of knowing to sew (anything for that matter) is to be able to put together personal, caring gifts when need arises.

When planning this one, this japanese-style fabric came to my mind immediately: I have stored it for years (I really mean, years) and it’s just perfect for the intended recipient. And it is like it was made to pair this Quilter’s Linen in red, which I had conveniently stashed.

This is a pretty simple pattern if you are confident working with zippers, which I am not. Anyway, it turns out a nice, useful detail to give.
