    I used to make these we called them May baskets to hang on a neighbors door with seeds and such in them.

    We called those May baskets in MN when I was little. Put all sorts of goodies in them and left them at our friends doors and ran~~ Love your Pennie pocket and the way you embellished it with the beads and yo yo. Very cute!

    I see your from NW MO. Just drove through the NW corner last week and stopped at a cute quilt store in Kearney called Sew Bee It. Picked up a few cute fabrics for my stash!

    Penny Pockets! Now, isn't that a clever use of embellishments, and practical hanging gift with beauty, inspiration, and some gifts without spending $$$ tons!
    Your friends are going to really enjoy your thoughtfulness!
