green gift

not all goals are accomplished in time. this jacket for a 3-year old i know was meant for x-mas, but didn't finnish until yesterday. i'm sure it will be appreciated anyway. 
pattern and yarn from Nøstebarn (pattern no 1921, Voksejakke - norwegian only).

a gift

you're maybe thinking that you've seen this incredible box of magic before? i know i have, right here. i just had no idea that i was the lucky friend to receive it. the leaf pattern is made by - well, leaves, plant dyed. this is a repurposed, reused, thrifted, ecologically sane and skillfully decorated treasure box. i so adore it. thank you, mona!


mona is a clever and innovative plant dyer and a maker of many things. you can see some of her work here, here and here.
