I finally found the perfect project for using some of my precious charm squares from Sarah’s Japanese Charm Swap. I have been hanging onto them for just the right moment – I wanted to use the charms for something special, and when my brother suggested I make a door hanger for my new wee nephew it seemed like the time to have some fun with my pile of 5 inch squares (which is what a charm square is – for anyone who is puzzled, as I would have been not so long ago).
So I pulled out my favourites and some natural linen – which seemed appropriate since many of the charms are linen or linen mix – and then had a wee think about how to put it together. I have had this door hanger pinned for ages but wanted to make pockets with a gusset so they could hold more.
I found it near impossible to photograph well which is a shame since I really love it. I haven’t handed it over yet but should really do so soon before it finds a permanent home on our landing door! I hope wee L will love it too.
