Sweater Bag

Here is a little pouch I made to hold a gift card for a Birthday present.
Super super easy and look down to see why!

Yes, it is a sweater sleeve. I found this wonderful sweater at the Goodwill store.
I was just overcome by the possibilities of making things with this sweater. I have had it for several months, when I was looking around for some holder to make for the gift card.
--Why, of course,--the sleeve!

I just cut it off and sewed it in-side- out and threaded a ribbon in the top to bring it together. So now, what ideas are there for the pockets and other trim, I wonder??

Easter Bonnets

Easter Parade

In your Easter bonnet, with all the frills upon it,

You'll be the grandest lady in the Easter parade.

I'll be all in clover and when they look you over,

I'll be the proudest fellow in the Easter Parade.

On the avenue, Fifth Avenue, the photographers will snap us,

And you'll find that you're in the rotogravure.

Oh, I could write a sonnet about your Easter bonnet,

And of the girl I'm taking to the Easter Parade.
