My mum came to visit us for 6 weeks. We always look forward to her visits eagerly. She lives in Malaysia and tries to visit us every year. This year her visit coincided with the first snowfall of the winter we've had in our part of the UK. The first day it snowed, she was as eager as the kids to get outdoors to play in it! (That's mum in the purple jacket and lilac hat.)
We bought the kids their first sledge which created a lot of excitement and came in very useful when collecting Missy Moo from Nursery and getting her and the shopping home. The kids now ask me on a regular basis when it will next snow so we can go find a slope for them to ride the sledge on.
Whilst she was here, Mum wanted me to make her a purse / credit card wallet. Her requirements were that it needed to be small and not too bulky. So the first wallet I made her was this one based on A Spoonful of Sugar's Scrappy loyalty card wallet. I really like this and might make one for myself.
She thought it was lovely but not quite what she wanted - perhaps something with a zip? So then I made her this simple little zippered pouch. It's just about big enough to take 3 - 4 cards. Perfect for coins too.
Still not quite there yet she says - she wondered if I could maybe make something with a velcro closure? So I made her this ...
Yep - that was perfect. Her next question was - "Can I keep them all?"
She took them all home to Malaysia with her.
