Just before Christmas, I saw the Dala Horse patchwork block from Moda Bakeshop ,
and I knew I had to make one!
To make it less Christmassy and more all season,
I made mine in blue
just like Miss C.'s horse that my sister sent her from Dalarma, Sweden.
I sewed it in linen and solid cotton,
following the directions from Moda,
I made the small version:
it is a pretty easy patchwork, but quite striking
with the solid blue and the texture of the natural linen.
I sewed some border around the block,
and made a little bag out of it,
loosely following this pattern from Sotak Handmade,
it has been my favorite way to make little bag/pouch lately.
