Ditty Bag and Business Card Wallets

I have been busy trying to get some more items sewn for my Etsy shop. I have been very fond of patterns from Michelle at Keyka Lou Patterns. She has a great shop at Keyka Lou Patterns as well as her Etsy shop Keyka Lou Etsy. Here are some of the latest items that I have sewn from her patterns.

Knitting

Owl Barette

I made the cute little Owl Barette on Ysolda’s blog out of my leftover Snapdragon Tam yarn. It’s a goldy-orange color in Malabrigo Worsted, colorway Sunset. My barette turned out really cute. I had to scavenge for the buttons to sew on for his eyes, but luckily there was a button up shirt in my closet that doesn’t fit anymore, so I cut a few buttons off. ^_^ Hooray for recycling!

I’m working on a felt cupcake as well. I will post pictures as soon as I find a base. I’m also thinking of writing up a pattern. More to come!
