I fully believe that if you've worked on one project for over two or three days,
it truly does become a labor of love!!!
And the gorgeous damask fabric I used on this piece?
It is the very endings of it...I have maybe a tiny bit to make a few sachets
but I've always, always thought it was so gorgeous!
ANYWAY...my organizer is finished!!!
The pattern worked I think...maybe I'll make another?? We'll see ~
But I do love this one so ~
I made a small cluster of different sized roses and leaves
at the very top to embellish.
I thought I would have added more laces and such but as I see it,
if you fill it with gorgeous treasures you have,
you would want THEM to be the star...
I can see a tiny teddy bear poked inside with it's sweet arms hanging out.
Or even a beautiful card that someone has sent you stuffed in the pockets.
Lace fragments that you can't bear to use...
Or a precious letter from a loved one.
You could place a beloved pin onto the front of a pocket
or stuff a few dried flowers inside that mean something to you.
This is not a shoe organizer.
It is a memory organizer....
To remind you of good times,
precious friends and family
things you love
and sweet memories.
My inspiration from a magazine clipping years ago:
Just listed here in my Etsy shop...
Thanks so much for being patient with me as I worked on this piece!!!!
Wishing you a beautiful April Monday precious friends ~
hugs and love,
