it's beautiful. if you were going to make another one and wanted the lotus to "pop" you could try lining it with fushia beads. they can be hard to find but i love that colour in lotus designs and think it would be gorgeous on yours.
awww, So cute!! i love the two wee little girl ones, hard to pick a fave but if i had to i'd say mary and her lambikin. very nice. those are the kind of totally inspired and unexpected gifts that would make anyone smile.
i have one that's almost finished, it's been in the crafty must-finish pile for a while (we moved, still unpacking). mine's just a box for thangs though, it's cute, i'll post pics when i find it and finish it off. it just needs a lining!
