A baby boy gift
A toiletry purse for a new little baby boy is done.
He is the second grandchild of a friend of mine.
The same friend once gave me the preprinted stitchery that now is on the front of the toiletry purse. It is printed on linen like fabric.
I can not remember exactly what year I got it, but it was when stitchery was very new in Norway and the motifs we could get were quite childish. That was before we could get all those lovely patterns we can get now and before stitchery magazines was imported.
Nowadays we get more choices, and Australian stitchery designers like Bronwyn Hayes and Hatched And Patched and more are available.
The motif is lovely for a small child and it was nice doing it now that I had a receiver in mind. The Flying Geese on the back side are remnants from a curtain I made for a woman at least 12 years back. I made approx. 4 or was it 5 meters of Flying Geese border for the curtain and had some left that have been used for different things. The last of them hit the green outdoor archive aka garbage after this purse was done. There were only a few and all the good colours were used.
The toiletry purse is 11,5" wide and 9,5" high.
