Christmas decorations

A little bit late I know, but here are some Christmas things, the three lower pieces I made this Christmas. The central triangular purses idea started years ago as amulet purses to hang around the neck- they were inspired by the book Africa Adorned. I have made them as scissor cases but they are also useful to put jewellery in, when traveling. The pattern is a square that folds up. The silver square purse on the right was one of the original amulet purses and the other two are stuffed shapes for Christmas decorations but they could double up as pin cushions!
