My bestie, Kate, wrote an amazing novel that was published last year, called The Woodcutter and ever since then my ideas for gifts for her revolve around lumberjacks and fairies. I'm sure that a moratorium will be called soon enough - until then: one more!
So last week Kate was sick sick sick with that horrible flu that was swirling around, so I decided what she needed was a pocket lumberjack to AXE her if she needed a tissue. Inspired by a design I saw online, I came up with this denim pouch with a lumberjack applique on the front.
His face and beard are appliqued felt pieces and his eyes are safety eye buttons (no choking hazard!).
I used a piece of leftover denim from an old pair of jeans and created a pattern for an envelope-shaped pouch to hold the tissues.
I used a small piece of velcro to hold it closed and protect the tissues.
Inside the pouch holds a single pocket-sized pack of tissues.
