small things

This is a small drawstring pouch I made for a friend with a little present tucked inside and a small vintage button on the front. We had a fun Christmas with Josh and Ash, watching them unwrap their pressies from Santa and sharing Christmas dinner with family. This Christmas has been a special one for us, it has made us realise how important family is and to remember our loved ones. I hope you have also had a lovely Christmas.
