Beltane is closing in fast and a lot of my crafting at the moment is circling around the spring theme.
This evening I just finished a Beltane fairy ornament, as a part of a swap on swapbot, I think she is really cute and I might make a couple for myself, to hang around my pagan dedicated area, in honour of the sabbat.

A couple of weeks ago I received a pretty green goddess doll in a swap and because of her cute little size I decided to use her for something other then an ornament, as she was intended.
I love the color of her and decided to make a belt bag/purse to match her.
I wanted a patchwork bag and went on the look out for pretty green fabrics, I had some in my stash and found some nice place mats in the local thrift store that I gutted.
I have never done patchwork before and I guess it takes some practice to get it straight, but it turned out acceptable.
The pattern is a slightly altered medieval merchant pouch pattern, I made it bigger and made the front flap a different shape.
The whole thing is lined with white linden and quite sturdy.
The drawstring is handmade on a lucet with green wool yarn.
The front flap holds the goddess doll and is decorated with chain stitches, beads and a single tassel (lately I have used quite a few tassels)
I really like then end result and cant wait for warmer weather, so I can wear it with a pretty skirt.

A little late I know, but I made these last month and then forgot all about bloging abot them.
I made them for a pagan yule ornament swap on swap-bot and had a lot of fun with them, I think they turned out pretty cute and I think a will make more next yule for myself.
I made one green and one blue, both with golden thread decorations and large round glass beads at the top.
I think they would real pretty on an yule tree or maybe on a troll hazel branch.
