the back is the pouch part where you could put some coins or some special treasures you have found in the garden or even whisper some wishes into it and close it up tight.
it is quite happily holding this little easter egg and will sit nicely in our easter display when the time comes.
i might even use those little claspy things next time although the velcro is easy for the kids to open.
i had the brain wave of adding some ribbon so that it can be worn around the neck this morning so my next attempt will incorporate this ribbon, perfect match dont you think?
i might have to add some to my etsy shop. the etsy shop is a funny thing because i dont know how much to charge but then to post it costs almost as much as the person has paid for it!! but to be honest it isnt really about the money, although the thought of one day owning my own shop full of whimsy and chic stuff is always on my mind.
anyhow off to get ready to take lili to yet another birthday party, at least i said no to the disco last night!
p.s. thank you for all you comments on the last post. lots of great advise and support. we are definitely going to change a few things we currently do and hopefully this phase will just fade away.
*i must add that the coin purse idea came from a book i had from the library*
