Pinned It and Did It!

I made a few things last month. Here's two of my creations. I made them as part of a dear friend's birthday gift.  The little knitting basket was inspired by THIS.  I don't knit so I made the basket out of scraps from a felted sweater. I love the colors of the yarn tucked inside the basket!

The heart was also inspired by something I saw on Pinterest but I never "pinned it" so I don't know who to give the credit too.  Three fabric hearts stacked and then stitched together. Then I stamped "friend" on another little bit of fabric and added it to the stack of hearts. It has a tiny little magnet on the back of it. Perfect "little something" to tuck inside a greeting card....don't ya think?

The knitting basket is totally cute. I love how, I think, you used toothpicks and beads for the knitting needles. The colors of yarn really make it pop. The heart is really nice too and functional with the magnet on the back.

Very cute! Lots of things you can do with it! Like stringing it up to use on a window, stuffing it like a pincushion, etc. Patsy from

your little basket is adorable. What a cute little gift. The magnet is really sweet and how simple to make too.
You are so crafty. I keep pinning things but have yet to go back and make any of the things I've pinned. I guess I'm just more of a collector of ideas...lol
