"P" is for Paying it Forward

Paying it forward: a mushroom pouch

I received two small pieces of this mushroom fabric from my zipper supplier, Jennie at zip-it.
(If you ever need zippers in bulk she has every size, every color and is super fast with your order.)

The pieces were the perfect size (6" x 5") for a mini pouch:

but as much as I love mushrooms (I made these jute wrapped paper mache mushrooms last spring.)

my bloggy friend Cassie over at Primitive and Proper had a woodland theme developing in her little girls bedroom so I knew the mushroom fabric had to go to her.

I made the tiny pouch and shipped it off, paying it forward:

Feels good to receive but even better to give.
