I Couldn't Resist

A few weeks ago, the designer of the jellyfish published a new pattern. She posts new patterns to her blog fairly often, but this was the first one in a while that made me say, "I have to make that". 

I have absolutely no use for it. But when I saw it, I just couldn't resist. 

It's a unicorn gift card holder. And I finally finished it this past week. 


Don't see a gift card? Well, open the arms...


It wasn't terribly hard, but there were a lot of pieces that needed to be sewn together. And the rainbow mane had to be knotted on strand by strand. (That makes it sound like it was a lot more work than it was, but there was a bit of assembly involved.) 


Several members of my family should consider themselves lucky that I didn't finish this thing sooner. They might have ended up with it. (I was soooo tempted to give it to my father for Father's Day--he got a gift card for movie tickets--but I restrained myself.) And as the next birthday in the family is mine... 

I'm probably going to put this up for sale. Although, I may just want to look at it for a while.

  2. How cool! Your family would be lucky to get a gift card in the rainbow unicorn. Isn't your brother's birthday coming up soon, too? Does he deserve rainbow unicorn?

  5. Cute! I wonder if it could be modified to hold a cell phone. Nicely done. I wish you'd given it to your dad, though. ~grin~ I'd love to hear that story.

    1. Probably. Depending on the cell phone size, it might have to be quite a bit larger.
