Here is the tiny pouch necklace that I made for hgddm for the Jar of Whimsies rd 10 swap.  All in all, it is about 1.25 inches by 1.25 inches big.  It is made of hand-stitched blue leather that I painted with bronze paint and I added a black pearl button for a closure.  I hope you enjoy it!

Very nice!  You have mad sewing skills to make something so tiny look so good.

I don't know about having "mad sewing skills", but I'm used to having to do small stitches.  The trick however, was to make sure that the leather would not tear (since I was using a glovers needle) by not placing the stitches too close together.

Adorable. It has a lot of character for such a tiny thing.

It's so petite!  I love the color, and the button is a perfect accent.  Smiley

Looking to de-stash cross stitch magazines, particularly Cross Stitch Gold or New Stitches?  Please drop me a line!  I'd love to swap or buy some missing from my library!

I've made tiny bag earrings before, and I know they're a lot of work. You did a great job on this!
