Petite Purls Feature

I am thrilled to announce that my work is featured in this spring’s issue of Petite Purls! The tutorial to make this sweet gift bag and the template for the adorable little elephant (I call him emmett) can be found here. I adore receiving lovingly hand-made gifts. When that gift arrives in a beautiful hand-made bag, it takes me over the moon. Constructed with a neutral cotton/linen blend and adorned with its own made-to-suit motif, these easy-to-make bags have enough detail to make them special on their own. Go check out the tutorial at Petite Purls and peruse all the other wonderful designs as well.

I found Petite Purls when I started this journey on my blog and have spent many a day dreaming of being featured there. It is a charming quarterly magazine with wonderful kids’ knits (my favorite!) and excellent sewing and crochet projects. The lovely and talented editors, Allegra and Brandy, couldn’t be sweeter. (They blog here and here). Some day . . . I thought – well someday is here. I am honored and overjoyed.
