Gifted Gorgeousness - March Edition

This is my post for the Gifted Gorgeousness SAL organised by Jo at Serendipitous Stitching. The idea is that on the fifteenth of each month you should post something which is in some way a gift, either something you've received or something you've sent, or perhaps something you've made using materials that were a gift, or - well you get the idea.
I've two small gifts which I sent out to show this month. The first is a  coin purse I made for Barb for her birthday last month. Barb loves sheep, so I made this from a souvenir tea towel with a farm animal design (the other side has a sheep dog on it)


The second is the prize I made for the GYOB giveaway which was won by Karin. A small decorative heart made from upcycled denim and a vintage doily

The purse is a really clever way of using a teatowel.
The denim and crochet heart is cute too.
