I joined in Friday Night With Friends last night and appliqued this little angel, which will become the front of a pouch to house special cards I want to keep after Christmas. I made one for a swap a few years ago and it turned out so well I wanted to keep it. The pouch is based on this one in Zakka Style, which has lots of great projects . I made one to give to my cousin-in-law Mairi in Scotland a few years ago - it's decorated with an applique design by Jen Kingwell from the first  Splendid Sampler series and Mairi uses it as an Ipad case. The front offers all sorts of possibilities for decoration- I've also used Christmas prints embellished with special buttons - while the bag itself would be ideal for ephemera such as postcards, letters,
concert tickets and so on - a repository for special keepsakes that evoke happy memories.
